      10 Haratua 1945 AWMM
      MM. Awarded for bravery in the field during attack near Uso River, Italy - 24/25 September 1944. 'On the night of 24-25 September 1944, Corporal Allen’s section was among the forward troops engaged in an attack against the enemy near the USO RIVER, Italy. During the attack a considerable amount of enemy machine-gun fire was encountered, but by bold personal action and splendid leadership Corporal Allen succeeded in destroying three machine-gun posts which were holding up the advance. At first light his Company found reorganisation on its objective difficult on account of a strong pocket of enemy resistance consisting of about a platoon of infantry with four machine guns in narrow entrances. Corporal Allen led his section in an attack on this position and although under machine-gun fire at almost point-blank range, rushed one of the entrances and succeeded in disorganising the defences, killing a number of the enemy and taking several prisoners. The small number of casualties sustained by his section was a tribute to Corporal Allen’s bold and enterprising leadership, involving as it did complete disregard for his own personal safety.'.
