Overview:
During the period 27 May/15 June 1942 in Libya, Lieutenant Colonel Foote commanded his battalion with outstanding courage and leadership, always being at the crucial point at the right time. On 6 June, although wounded, he continued to lead his battalion from an exposed position on the outside of a tank, and succeeded in defeating the enemy's attempt to encircle two Allied divisions. On 13 June, when a number of Allied tanks had been destroyed, he went on foot, "..from one tank to another, to encourage the crews under intense artillery and anti-tank fire". By...his magnificent example the corridor was kept open and the Brigade was able to march through". Henry Robert Bowreman Foote was awarded the Victoria Cross.
