2Lt George Gunn VC MC
2Lt George Gunn was a Troop Commander of four lorry-mounted, 2 pounder Anti Tank Guns. Despite his best efforts, throughout the morning, the guns were knocked out and destroyed until the last one was hit. It remained in action manned the BC, Maj Pinney, the No1 and George Gunn as layer. He remained undeterred by intense fire and overwhelming odds; his gallant resistance only stopped with his death. This most gallant of actions prevented a desperate situation turning into a rout. J (Sidi Rezegh) Battery continued to wear red backings to their RHA ciphers to commemorate this action
Rank/Regt: J Battery RHA, now J (Sidi Rezegh) Battery RHA.
