Military Cross (MC)
T./2nd Lt. Ernest Lindup, Gen. List, and
For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. During the recent operations, when bombing troops on roads from low altitudes, he was attacked by three hostile triplanes, one of which he shot down, finally driving off the remaining two. Though, all his lateral controls were shot away, he succeeded in landing his machine at his aerodrome. On a later occasion, whilst on photographic work, when his machine was badly damaged by anti-aircraft fire, he succeeded in landing it behind our lines. He has destroyed one enemy machine and shot down out of control four others. His services have been characterised by gallantry and determination.
