S/9045 Sjt. J. Hogg, Sea. Highrs.(Langholm).
For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. When all the officers of his company except one had become casualties during a hostile counter-attack, which had pierced our line on both flanks, he organised the platoons near him under heavy barrage of machine-gun fire, steadied them, and issued orders whereby the line was able to hold firm and inflict heavy losses on the enemy.

The DCM award was announced in 19 October 1917 p.10865
