During the battle the tank was hit three times and the shell splinters
continued to hit the tank but Gunner Fehr leaned far out of the hatch eight times
to receive fire orders from his troop commander who was on the ground
Gunner Fehr passed these messages back to the artillery regiment by
wireless and finally the enemy guns were neutralized.
Gunner Fehr's bravery and devotion to duty was responsible for effective fire
being brought down on these enemy guns thus allowing C Company of the Irish
Regiment of Canada to reach their objective with few casualties”.
