Military Medal : On the 2nd December, 1958, Trooper CUNNINGHAM was manning the bren gun of a patrol protecting a position, seized two days previously on the Aqbat al Dhafar. When the patrol was attacked by forty rebels using light machine guns. CUNNINGHAM displayed great courage. His accurate and steady fire inflicted casualties upon the enemy and denied success to them.
On the night of the 27th December Trooper CUNNINGHAM took part in a raid on the main rebel position. Once again he displayed marked courage when he stood up despite accurate enemy small arms fire and fired at very close range right into an enemy picquet position with devastating effect.
The steadiness under fire and devotion to duty of Trooper CUNNINGHAM has provided a fine example to the younger members of the troop.
