London Gazette: 
No. 1522998 Gunner David Alexander Donald, Royal Regiment of Artillery (Belfast)
B.E.M. - 7th July 1944
  'The KING has been graciously pleased to approve the award of the British Empire Medal (Military Division), in recognition of gallant conduct in carrying out hazardous work in a very brave manner...'

The official recommendation reads:

  'On the 7th March, 1944, a party of Royal Engineers was blown up when working near the shore in East Anglia. Sergeant Martin instructed Gunners McKie and Donald to bring a stretcher and to follow him down to the concrete road to shore, through the minefield, to render first aid to seriously wounded Sappers. 

  Sergeant Martin rendered first aid, bandaging the wounded men. The efficient manner in which this first aid was carried out received the highest praise of the hospital staff to which the two wounded men were admitted. All three rescuers showed a complete disregard for their personal safety, and their bravery and prompt action were outstanding.' 

The entry in the London Gazette shows that Gunner Donald was a resident of Belfast, Northern Ireland. 

The medals are in good condition and are mounted on a board backing for display.
