Wright. Andrew B. Major, 11th Suffolks.

Sir Andrew Wright, KCMG, CBE, MC was one of the few officers to emerge unhurt on 1 July 1916. He was awarded an immediate MC at Hargicourt in 1917 and a Bar to it at the Battle of the Lys in 1918. He had shared huts and billets with Gilson for 18 months and in a letter to Gilson's father wrote "It was the final but not the first triumph of determination over his sensitive nature - he alone is brave who goes to face everything with a full knowledge of (his own) cowardice." Sir Andrew was Governor and Commander-in-Chief of Cyprus from 1949 to 1954 and contributed most of the earlier history of the 11 Suffolk in "The History of the Suffolk Regiment 1914-1917".
