London Gazette Publication date:25 August 1916 Supplement:29724 Page:8463

Temp. 2nd Lt. Maurice Charles Mowbray, R.E.
For conspicuous gallantry and determination, notably when consolidating a crater.
His work was destroyed four times during the night by shell and trench mortar fire. He kept his party together, and displayed an utter disregard of personal safety.

This was corrected to read:
2nd Lt. Maurice Charles Mowbray, R.E.,is now correctly described (not Temp. 2nd Lt. as published).
