London Gazette: 14th September 1943 (M.M.)
A notice of 16th August 1945 confirms the correct spelling of the surname and accounts for the correction upon the Medal. The original Recommendation - for an Immediate award - states:
'Wadi Akarit. During the attack on 6th April, this N.C.O. was with the leading Company.
He showed outstanding leadership and complete lack of fear. He led his men repeatedly against the enemy who were endeavouring to infiltrate into his position.
He caused heavy casualties amongst the enemy and throughout the day set a magnificent example moving from trench to trench despite heavy sniping.'
Neil McDougall, a native of Oxford, was born in 1916 and also earned himself a 'mention' for the Middle East (London Gazette 6th April 1944, refers), before being killed in action on 25 June 1944, whilst serving with the 5th Battalion at the Second Battle of St Honorine. McDougall left a widow, Ruby, and is buried at La Delivrande War Cemetery.
