One individual recalls the gallant actions of Captain Ackroyd: 'He seemed to be everywhere; he tended and bandaged scores of men, for to him fell the rush of cases round Clapham Junction and towards Hooge. But no wounded man was treated hurriedly or unskillfully. Ackroyd worked as stoically as if he were in the quiet of an operating theatre... When it was all over and the reports came in, it was found that there were twenty-three separate recommendations of his name for the Victoria Cross..'
