Extract from Symbol of Courage by Max Arthur:

AFRICA - Allied strategy in the war was concentrated on taking German colonies, particularly Togoland, Cameroon, South-West Africa and German East Africa. Fighting in 1914 was in West Africa, where an Anglo-French invasion of Cameroon made swift progress, and in German East Africa, where twelve thousand troops of the Indian Army's Expeditionary Force C were thrown back after an ill-prepared attack on the main port, Tanga.

BUTLER, John Fitzhardinge Paul Lieutenant, King's Royal Rifle Corps, attached Pioneer Coy., Gold Coast Regiment

17 November 1914 – In the Cameroons with a party of thirteen men he went into thick bush and attacked and defeated a much greater force of the enemy. A machine-gun and many loads of ammunition were captured. 27 December 1914 – Whilst on patrol duty with a few men, he swam the Ekam River under heavy fire, carried out his reconnaissance on the far bank and swam back to safety.

Lord Gifford VC was his uncle.

An extract from The London Gazette dated 23rd August 1915:-

"For most conspicuous bravery in the Cameroons, West Africa. On 17th November, 1914, with a party of 13 men, he went into the thick bush and at once attacked the enemy, in strength about 100, including several Europeans, defeated them, and captured their machine gun and many loads of ammunition. On 27th December, 1914, when on patrol duty, with a few men, he swam the Ekam River, which was held by the enemy, alone and in the face of a brisk fire, completed his reconnaissance on the further bank, and returned in safety. Two of his men were wounded while he was actually in the water".
