ALLMAND, Captain, MICHAEL, V C, EC/8188. Indian Armoured Corps attd. 3rd Bn. 6th Gurkha Rifles. 24th June 1944. Age 20. Son of Arthur John and Marguerite Marie Allmand, of Golders Green, London. 13. A. 4. The following details are given in the London Gazette of October 26th, 1944:-The 6th Gurkha Rifles in Burma were ordered on 11 June, 1944, to attack Pin Hmi road Bridge. The approach to the bridge was held by the Japanese, who were delaying the advance by the most desperate resistance. Captain Allmand's platoon was leading the attack but suffered severe casualties and was forced to seek cover. Captain Allmand, however, charged on by himself, hurling grenades into the enemy gun positions and killing three Japanese with his kukri. Inspired by this action the surviving men of his platoon captured their objective. Two days later, personally killing a number of enemy machine gunners, he successfully led his men and captured another objective. On June 23rd, in the final attack on the railway bridge at Mogaung, despite trench-feet, Captain Allmand moved forward alone and charged a machine-gun nest single handed. He was mortally wounded and died shortly afterwards. The superb gallantry, outstanding leadership and protracted heroism of this very brave officer were a wonderful example to the whole battalion and in the highest traditions of his regiment
