McCullough, although wounded in both hands and one leg, tossed one of their own grenades back among an enemy patrol before it exploded; the second when Corporal L. N. Dunlea and Lance-Corporal J. W. Barbour retrieved the body of Lieutenant O. Nicholls after he had been killed.' (Source: Gillespie, O.A. The Pacific. p. 137.) AWMM
