Medal: The Military Medal 1916 (1st type)
Military Medal and riband awarded posthumously to Sgt Henry James Nicholas, VC
"Operations on Welsh and Bon Avis Ridges - 28th September to 1st October 1918. For fearless leadership and contempt of danger during the operations - particularly on 29th September when after a successful advance, his company's flank was in the air and position critical. By skilful handling and heroic example, he inspired his men and so enabled his half-platoon to break an enemy attack of superior numbers. The success of the operations was in a considerable measure, due to his great example and contempt of danger." Official citation. Medal gazetted March 1919, so received posthumously by the family.
