Captain Ronald Graham Kennell Hardey


Unit : No.2 Troop, No.6 Commando

Service No. : 121641

Awards : Military Cross


Captain Hardey was in command of the leading troop in the approach march from the Brigade Forming Up Point off the beach to the Caen Canal. It was essential that he should push ahead and brush aside all opposition.


His troop neutralised no less than seven enemy emplacements and took the surrender of a four gun battery.


Captain Hardey's judgement and leadership were faultless, and his fearless example was beyond praise.
