Lt. Lindon Helton BIDDULPH, 35th BN, A.I.F. At PLOEGSTEERT WOOD during the operations from the 26th of May to the 10th June 1917, he was in charge of the Main Divisional Dump at HYDE PARK CORNER. On the 1st of June, four truck loadeds of 3" stokes mortar ammunition were exploded, causing 120 casualties and setting fire to adjacent dumps. He did admirable work in preventing further disaster from ensuing.
