Salzmann of New York. Ths announcement cited. Lt. Col. Salzmann for "gallantry in action. In November, 1M2, in J^ench Morocco, when his bat¬ talion attacked a strong enemy position supported by heavy land and naval artillery, Lieu¬ tenant Colonel Salzmann placed himself at the headof a flanking unit which came-.under heavy machine gun fire. Believing Ihis fire to come from an adja¬ cent friendly unit, and when other means of identification failed, he deliberately exposed himself to full view ami gave arm signals of iflentification. Enem.v fire then concentrated upon him, thus identifying the fire as hostile. Later, a machine gun firing on this-flanking group was de¬ finitely located' l)y Lieutenant Colonel Salzmann, at which mo¬ ment he took a rifle from the nearest soldier and put the gun out of action with rifle tire from a range of about three hund)fed yards. Some minutes later, Lieu¬ tenant Colonel Salzmann located a sniper firing at his group and killed or Wounded him with rifle fire at a raftge of about one hundretl yards.
