Sergeant Samuel Cooper


Unit : No.46 (Royal Marine) Commando

Service No. : PO/X105978

Awards : Military Medal


After the bulk of the officers and Senior N.C.Os. in his troop had been killed during the initial assault this Sergeant took a leading part in directing street fighting operations within his troop. Later on he led a courageous assault on to a strong enemy machine gun position in the open fields on the South West side of the town.


There is no indication of the date or of which town was being attacked, but it is probably either Le Hamel or Rots on the 11th June 1944.
