His Military Medal was announced in the unit on the 17th December 1917 and appeared in the London Gazette 10th April 1918. The award was for his actions at Beit Er El Tamta on the 28th November 1917, not long after the brigades fighting at Beersheba, an extract from the war diary describes the action as follows, “Lt. H.D Price took one gun out to a hill about V2 mile to the left flank, and fired 1000 round at the enemy concentrating below the hill to prepare for a counter-attack on the Staffs Yeo. Fire observed to take good effect and enemy concentration dispersed. On his return, Lt. Price discovered that the E.R. Yeo and the Staffs Yeo had already withdrawn from the position that they had held throughout the day, and was subjected to heavy fire whilst withdrawing his gun. The other gun was got out with great difficulty, under a severe fire by the NCO in charge (SGT. Jackson J.B.). Both guns were withdrawn intact with all spare parts. New positions taken up and emplacements made”
