Manitoba’s Tommy Prince was awarded the Military Medal for his brave actions during a reconnaissance mission near Littoria, Italy, in February 1944. Sergeant Prince was reporting on German artillery positions from an abandoned farmhouse when his telephone line was cut by shelling. Undeterred, he put on civilian clothes, went outside in full view of the enemy and pretended to be a farmer hoeing his crops. When he found where his line had been broken, Prince bent down like he was tying his shoes but instead quickly reconnected the wires before returning inside to resume his duties.
