CITATION:

Military Cross : Lieutenant McLeod's work and example during the Radfan operations were exceptional: he patrolled frequently and with success by night, seeking routes for the battalion's advance, searching houses in No Man's Land for documents and arms, while continuing by day to assimilate and assess information coming into his possession.

On 26th May, he was one of a party shot down in a Scout helicopter being wounded painfully in the arm. After a short pause while this was stitched and bound, he immediately returned to duty, undertaking two important patrols despite consistent sniping, which he disregarded coolly. His bravery and determination to perform his duty in the face
