Lieutenant James Spencer Roffey

From the London Gazette, 4 October 1919, 12330

“Lt. James Spencer Roffey, 2/4th Bn., Oxf. & Bucks. L.I., T.F., attd. C/107th Bde., R.F.A. On the first November, 1918, just west of Mareshes, when ordered forward with an anti-Tank 18-pounder gun, he placed his gun in such a position in the forward line that when the enemy counter-attacked with Tanks he was able to destroy an enemy Tank. He continued to handle his gun with marked coolness and ability in an exposed position, thus most materally assisting to drive off the counter-attack and to help the advance of our own infantry.”
