M.M. London Gazette 11 October 1945, the original recommendation states:

‘Staff Sergeant L. T. Brown, Regimental Artificer, 7 Canadian Medium Regiment, R.C.A., has always done outstanding work in keeping the guns of the regiment in action. During the period 1 February 1945 to 30 April 1945, the guns were subjected to observed enemy gun fire on several occasions but through the efforts of Staff Sergeant Brown the guns were repaired and kept in action.

On one occasion the regiment was deployed in square 0540 supporting 4 Canadian Armoured Division in the attack on Veen, square 1186. The gun area was under heavy, observed enemy artillery fire by day and constant enemy bombing and strafing by night. This N.C.O. showed great coolness, perseverance and fortitude in repairing and maintaining guns that had been knocked out. To a great extent it was by his effort that the guns were kept in action, thus materially assisting in the successful outcome of the operation.

Again, during the preparation for the Rhine crossing, when the regiment was in action near Wissel, a gun was damaged by observed fire from a 105mm. Staff Sergeant Brown coolly carried on and repaired the gun in spite of the continuing and accurate enemy shelling.

Throughout the whole period from Normandy to the present time, this N.C.O. has shown untiring devotion to duty and coolness under fire, and by his technical ability and perseverance he has kept the guns in action which otherwise would have been evacuated and lost to the regiment.’
