Service Life:


Unit / Ship / Est.: 19th Bn. Machine Gun Corps C Company 

Action : France & Flanders 

France & Flanders covers all the dates and corresponding locations which are outside the official battle nomenclature dates on the Western Front. Therefore the actions in which these men died could be considered 'normal' trench duty - the daily attrition losses which were an everyday fact of duty on the Western Front.

Detail :

LONDON GAZETTE, 16 SEPTEMBER, 1918 T./Lt. (A./Capt.) John Coventry Bromhall, M.C., M.G. Corps. For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He fought his machine guns with great determination, and when they had nearly all been put out of action he placed himself under the orders of a battalion commander and carried out several daring reconnaissances. Finally he led forward a local counter-attack with great dash and complete disregard for danger until he was severely wounded. (M.C. gazetted 1st January, 1917.)
