The recommendation states: ‘T/Experimental Sergeant-Major (W.O. Class I) Percy Edward Crack, Royal Artillery Experimental Establishment, Shoeburyness. Senior Experimental Sergeant-Major for over 4 years. Has done outstanding work in the post-war period. With many difficulties due to lack of manpower, has organized a daily programme of trials and proof with great ability and thus helped to maintain the previous high standard of practical experimental work carried out for the Ministry of Supply.’
