    Military Medal (MM) AWMM
    MM. London Gazette, 11 May 1917, p4602, Rec No 724: "During enemy raid on our trenches at N.36.a. and N.M.36.b Wulverghem on 24th March 1917. Private Brill set a splendid example of courage and devotion to duty in keeping his machine gun in action throughout a most intense bombardment lasting from 4am until 5.15am and in keeping the gun firing during the time he and the remainder of the team (two of them were wounded) were being bombed from the rear by the enemy, six of whom had succeeded in entering our trenches. Private Brill was successful in so severely wounding one of the enemy as to prevent his return to the German lines, thus giving us the means to ascertain identification of enemy units employed to carry out the raid.
