DOB abt. 1889

 

Awarded Military Medal for gallantry and devotion. Supervised the evacuation of wounded and gas patients from forward area to Advanced Dressing Station on August 27th 1918, Belgian Battery Corner Advanced Dressing Station.

"On October 23rd and 24th, he and his stretcher-bearers had worked hard, with very little food for two days, fetching in wounded till quite dark, then there was one wounded soldier left for whom there were no bearers.  Sergt. Nutter carried the man on his back through the sticky mud about eight inches deep, for two miles. He spent two months in those trenches without a break. A spell of influenza forces Sergt. Nutter to the hospital, but he is now all right, and is attached to the School of Sanitation as an instructor."
