    6 April 1944 AWMM
    'Lance Corporal Carter operated the wireless a set of his Company in in the series of attacks from the Battle of the SANGRO RIVER, Italy on 28 November 1943 to the establishment of a bridgehead across the Orsogna-Ortona Road on the night of 15-16 December 1943 and during the subsequent counter-attacks. In the first attack his Company met with heavy machine-gun and mortar fire but although he was unable to obtain cover he carried on with his work with complete fearlessness. Later, in the attack on Castelfrentano, he maintained constant communication with Battalion Headquarters in spite of heavy fire. During the period of consolidation following the successful attack on 15-16 December he did excellent work repairing lines although the area was under continuous fire. Lance Corporal Carter at all times placed the maintenance, of wireless and line communication before his personal safety. His fearlessness and devotion to duty were an inspiration to those working with him and of great importance in maintaining vital communications.'. (Source: The National Archives. Recommendation for Award for Carter, Terence George. (Ref. WO 373/5/455). Military Medal. AWMM
