Lt. A. L. Howard
Canadian Militia
Attached: Royal Canadian Dragoons
late 1/Canadian Mounted Rifles

Lt. Col. Alderson Commanding 1st M.I. Corps reports as follows as regard the action on the 7th July 1900.

Lt. A. L. HOWARD “I would again bring this officers name to Notice as having done exceptionally good work with his Machine Gun. At Leewburg on the 7th July Lt. Howard took his gun up into the firing line of the 1/M.I. And very materially assisted in keeping the enemy back. When the line was outflanked and compelled to retire Lt. Howard, having had his own horse, his Sergeants horse and the Gun horse hit, also the gun carriage hit twice, took the gun off the Carriage and walked with it under his arm. “Subsequently he and his Sergeant (Sergt. E. Holland) went out and recovered the Gun Carriage and also brought in two wounded men of the 1/M.I.”

“Lt. Howard's coolness in action is remarkable and he and his Gun are always to be relied upon.”

I fully endorse the report of Colonel Alderson. This officer has been several times mentioned to me for exceptional services and I have more than once.
