War Office, 1st December, 1914.
His Majesty the KING has been graciously pleased to approve of the appointment of the undermentioned Officers to be Companions of the Distinguished Service Order, in recognition of their services with the Expeditionary Force, specified below:
Lieutenant Frederick Herbert Blackwood, attached 1st Battalion, The Lincolnshire Regiment. On 1st November, at Wyfschaete, during an attack on village, rallied and kept men in their places after every company commander had been killed or wounded, showing great gallantry and coolness under heavy fire.


London Gazette 13 September 1918.
Capt. (A./Lt.-Col.) William Blackwood, D.S.O., M.B., R.A.M.C. For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty while in charge of the evacuation of casualties from the Divisional front during an enemy attack. When communication with the advanced dressing-station was cut by enemy barrage he re-established communication and personally visited the posts under his administration. Throughout the fighting he visited the forward area daily, and his indefatigable energy and exceptional organising ability were invaluable to the Division. (D.S.O. gazetted 3rd June, 1918.)
