He displayed great courage, coolness and determination in getting this platoon out a difficult situation. 2 On 6th March at PEGU the enemy attacked at first light and over ran the river line north of the town.

A platoon and one section of carriers under Captain Mahoney. I ordered Captain Mahoney with his carriers to patrol this area and prevent further penetration. He showed courage and initiative in carrying out this task killing six enemy in a L. He also successfully covered the withdrawal of a platoon of The West Yorks Regt.
