Military Cross citation reads: For distinguished service in action and devotion to duty at Scarlet Beach, Finschhafen, while acting as battery commander of 10 Australian Light Anti Aircraft Battery in support of 9 Australian Division. On 18 October, the Japanese commenced a counter attack from the west. One section of the 10 Australian Light AA Battery was one of the first sub units of 9 Australian Division to be attacked where there was no infantry screen. As the day progressed, other guns of the battery were attacked and several had to be withdrawn. One gun had to be temporarily abandoned owing to the speed of the Japanese advance. Captain Harris continued to visit his troops and guns, encouraging his men and where possible himself supervising their withdrawal to fresh positions. He led a party to a gun temporarily abandoned under fire and in view of the enemy 100 yards away and rendered it temporarily unserviceable. When the area of his battery headquarters came under machine gun and mortar fire and was directly threatened, he skilfully organised its defence and set an inspiring example of cheerfulness and coolness. During the whole day he obtained and passed information of enemy movements and progress to Headquarters 24 Australian Infantry Brigade and to his regimental headquarters which proved most useful and valuable. He also gave great assistance in organising the local defence of the area until the infantry arrived. Captain Harris showed complete disregard for his personal safety and great coolness and presence of mind. His leadership and example were outstanding particularly as he had very recently been placed in command of a strange battery. [LG 115/5/1944 p 2170]. (P)

Awarded MID per citation: 'Sergeant Lionel William Porter enlisted in the Australian Army on 10 January 1955 and was allotted to the Royal Australian Signals Corps. He joined the 110th Signal Squadron, Australian Force Vietnam, on 5 December 1967. On 6 May 1968, Sergeant Porter was the Duty Sergeant at the 110th Signal Squadron Headquarters, and the Australian Force Vietnam Transmitter Station compound at Phu Tho. These duties required him to be responsible for the security of the compound. At approximately 0600 hours, grenades exploded and rifle fire was heard from the adjacent village on the western perimeter of the compound. This enemy fire intensified, and some enemy mortar rounds exploded within the compound. Sergeant Porter calmly, but rapidly deployed the guard, allotting bunkers, issuing clear fire control orders, and personally distributed reserve ammunition and supplies to all members of the guard. He also controlled and directed eight United States Army soldiers who were in the compound. The compound was virtually isolated for two days by the three sided enemy action within the village complex, Sergeant Porter efficiently and accurately directed fire onto the enemy, thereby restricting the enemy's capacity to manoeuvre, and greatly reducing the effect of the enemies' fire on the compound and its structures. Sergeant Porter displayed self discipline, and an outstanding sense of duty and responsibility towards the safety of the soldiers under his command, and for the security of this key compound. By his actions he established an example to his subordinates that reflects great credit upon himself, his unit and the Australian Regular Army'. EF. (P)
