Raikes, South Wales Borderers Special Reserve, attached Tanks Corps, is now officially described in the London Gazette-" as follows He directed tanks in attack with utter disregard of danger, continually going about on foot giving orders in full view of the enemy and exposed to heavy fire, and set a magnificent example of courage and contempt of danger throughout." 11 Temp.
