The Citation, recorded in the London Gazette of Supplement: 29202, Page: 6115, reads:
“No. 1539 Colour-Serjeant Frederick William Hall, 8th Canadian Battalion.
On 24th April, 1915, in the neighbourhood of Ypres, when a wounded man who was lying some 15 yards from the trench called for help, Company Serjeant-Major Hall endeavoured to reach him in the face of a very heavy enfilade fire which was being poured in by the enemy. The first attempt failed, and a Non-commissioned Officer and private soldier who were attempting to give assistance were both wounded. Company Serjeant-Major Hall then made a second most gallant attempt, and was in the act of lifting up the wounded man to bring him in when he fell mortally wounded in the head.”
He has no known grave and is commemorated on the Menin Gate Memorial to the Missing, panel 24-30.
