£140-£180 M.M. London Gazette 12 July 1945. The original recommendation states:


‘At Marsum on 8 April 1945, Private Gallagher was a member of a platoon working with a troop of tanks to investigate the state of a bridge across the River Weser. When within 150 yards of the river the enemy opened up from the other side with rifles and machine- guns and 88mm. A.A. guns. Owing to the openness of the ground it was decided to withdraw the platoon to a flank behind a small rise. Private Gallagher’s section remained behind to give covering fire. The section then tried to extricate itself. Gallagher thereupon seized the Bren gun and with one other soldier remained in position firing the gun till his ammunition ran out. During this time his comrade was killed by the intense enemy fire. His bravery and coolness under extreme conditions were a magnificent example to the whole platoon and his action undoubtedly saved the lives of his comrades.’


Note: A Military Medal marked ‘replacement’ is known to exist to this recipient (Glendining’s, 6 July 1977, Lot 6), and a M.M. group including AGS was sold in these rooms in September 2004.
