Military Conduct: Exemplary
Testimonial: L/Bdr Uggles, a Territorial, has served with 92nd Field Regiment RA throughout the war as an extremely efficient gunner and Junior N.C.O. no matter the conditions in or out of action. He has tackled any responsibility willingly and used his intelligence and initiative to quick advantage. His Battery will sadly miss his cheerful, likeable personality and I can recommend him without hesitation as an absolutely first class, loyal and reliable man of the very highest order.
