    Military Medal (MM) AWMM
    21 Pipiri 1945 AWMM
    'Throughout his service this soldier constantly displayed resolute devotion to duty under all conditions. During the severe fighting around POINT 175 and SIDI REZEGH, Libya, in 1941 Driver Barr did not falter in spite of repeated heavy shell-fire, finally bringing his vehicle out safely after a fortnight in the battle area. As an ambulance driver for the greater part of 1942 he performed sterling work, notably during the breakout from Mingar Qaim, when he brought a load of patients through intense fire of all types although his ambulance vehicle was extensively damaged. During the long weeks at the El Alamein Line his initiative and sense of duty often prompted him to venture out under actual shelling and bombing in order to bring aid to the wounded when ambulance cars were most urgently needed. Driver Barr also spent a lengthy period in Italy in forward positions often working by night in places where none but fighting vehicles normally ventured. His work was always of a very high order and whatever duties were assigned to him he carried out in a most reliable manner, thus setting a fine example to his fellow-soldiers.'.
