Captain Archie C T White, VC MC

Captain Archie C T White, VC MCFor most conspicuous bravery at Stuff Redoubt on the 27th September and the 1st October 1916.

He was in command of the troops that held the southern and western faces of a redoubt. For four days and nights, by his indomitable spirit, great personal courage and skilful dispositions, he held his position under fire of all kinds and against several counter-attacks.

Though short of supplies and ammunition, his determination never wavered. When the enemy attacked in greatly superior numbers and had almost ejected our troops from the redoubt, he personally led a counter-attack which finally cleared the enemy out of the southern and western faces.

He risked his life continually and was the life and soul of the defence.
