Citation for the award of the Military Cross

"T/2nd Lt Thomas Coates Miller, 32nd Bn., M.G.Corps.

For great coolness and initiative during the attack on Chataignes Wood, near Joncourt, on 3rd October, 1918  He led his platoon most gallantly through barrages after personally reconnoitring the routes, inflicted many casualties on the enemy, and materially assisted in neutralising the fire of the enemy machine guns.  In this way he materially assisted our infantry in their advance."

(London Gazette - 4 October 1919)
