M.M. for the action at Dand Banda on 23-8-1935. - “The advance guard reached Dand at about 1800 hrs and “B” Company acting as the rear guard was called on to attack and occupy a ridge overlooking the selected camp sites. In gaining their objective the Company came under heavy and accurate rifle fire, thereby suffering four casualties - L/Cpl’s Stone, Britten, and Pte’s Clarke and Ward. The remainder of the Battalion eventually reached  camp at 10.50 hrs, having withdrawn 15 road piquets en route, most of which had to be called down in the dark. The fact that the rear guard was not fold up was proof of the severe defeat the enemy had suffered. Enemy casualties were reported as being not less than 60 dead and 40 wounded. Our own casualties were 9 killed and 21 wounded. For their conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty for the attack on the ridge, L/Cpl’s Stone and  Britten were both awarded the Military Medal.”   L/Cpl Britten died on 22-4-1943 whilst serving with the 10th Bn Duke of Wellington’s Regt., aged 56 and is  buried in Rotherham (Masbrough) Cemetery.
