Description

Recommendation, 22 E.A. Inf. Brigade, 5/K.A.R., 9 Apr 1941: This 2/Lt. at AUASC on 3 Apr 1941, on being ordered to cross the river and gain the heights above which were held by the enemy, he first waded the river up to his chest in water, and was swept down stream. On gaining the far side he found a safe passage for his men, got them across, and led them up to the heights. On reaching the heights the Pl. came under M.M.G. fire from both flanks. 2.Lieut. Langridge proceeded to deal with one part after another until he had cleared up the whole position. During this action he and his platoon were under constant M.M.G. fire, until the final post was captured. This Officer's fine example and coolness under fire was an inspiration to his men, and was responsible for the capture of a very strongly fortified position."
