    On 27 August 1901, near Alkmaar, Pte B Knowles and Pte W Galon were part of the garrison of a blockhouse consisting of seven men in the vicinity of a train that was derailed and attacked by the enemy.


    They volunteered to go out and defend the train, which they did, and kept the enemy off till support arrived.
    (London Gazette, 3 December 1901, p8548). 

    Both men were promoted Corporal by the Commander-in-Chief.
