Military-Cross-WEBCitation as printed in a supplement to the London Gazette, 11th January 1919

Leiutenant Cyril George Hooke

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. When a shell landed on a hut, killing one man and badly wounding three he got a stretcher bearer party and removed the wounded man under heavy fire, two men being wounded in the process. On two other occasions during heavy gas shelling and high explosive fire, he went round the dug-outs seeing to his men and assisted in carrying a wounded man to the dressing station under shell fire the whole way.All-Medals-2-WEB
