London Gazette Publication date:16 November 1917 Supplement:30389 Page:11952 [Award]
2nd Lt. Robert Cecil Muir Mackenzie, Durh L.I., attd. T.M. By.

London Gazette Publication date:19 March 1918 Supplement:30590 Page:3606 [Citation]

2nd Lt. Robert Cecil Muir Mackenzie, Durh. L.I.
For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. During a raid he, with great gallantry, kept his guns firing throughout the whole action, despite the very heavy barrage which the enemy put down in the vicinity, and the successful shooting of his gun teams was mainly due to his admirable example in a heavily shelled area devoid of any cover. Subsequently he performed excellent work in rescuing five out of six men from a blown-in dug-out.
