Citation. - Excerpt from London Gazette. 31st May 1918. Recorded the following
“ For the most conspicuous and determined leadership when in command of a company detailed to occupy a section of trench. When the company was established, it was found that a considerable gap of about 400 yards existed between the left flank of the company and the neighbouring unit, and that this gap was strongly held by the enemy. It was of vital importance that this gap should be cleared but no troops were then available. Organising a small party of less than a dozen men, he led them against the enemy. On reaching an entrenched machine gun, 2nd Lt. Beal immediately sprang forward and with his revolver killed the team and captured the gun. Continuing down the trench he encountered and dealt with another machine gun in the same manner, and in all he and his party captured four enemy guns and inflicted severe casualties. Later in the evening, when a wounded man had been left in the open under heavy enemy fire, he, regardless of danger, brought in the wounded man on his back. 2/Lt. Beal was killed by a shell the following morning.”
