London Gazette, 28 January 1918, p1405, Rec No 1612: During operation Belle Vue Spur near Passchendale on 12th October, Sapper Clark went forward with 2nd Brigade Forward Station Party about midnight. Under shellfire they wended their way towards the front line. At daylight they were met by heavy machine gun and shellfire. Sapper Clark was twice knocked down by concussion and debris but carried on as most of the party had been knocked out. He was eventually the only visual man left but set up station at Waterloo House. Without cover he got "through" to Abraham's Heights and transmitted messages. At this time Waterloo was heavily shelled and his conduct was of exeptional nature. Sapper Clark has done work of the greatest value throughout the period the division has been on the Ypres Front.
