    Lieutenant Frederick Charles DUNDAS 29th Battalion 9th Reinforcement A.I.F. At POLYGON WOOD on 26th. September, 1917, Lieutenant DUNDAS was sniped and badly wounded in the head, but finding that very few Officers remained with the Battalion he insisted on going forward. The Officer who had been detailed to establish communication with the Battalion on our left flank was missing and Lieutenant DUNDAS carried out his duty. His devotion to duty is deserving of special mention. Lieutenant-Colonel Muir Purser C.O. 29th Battalion Recommendation: Mention in Despatches
