Additional notes relating to the citation: Cameron was nominated for a DCM but awarded an Immediate MM. Details of action:

"At 0400 hrs on the night 14/15 Apr 45 a Bn Gp of 46 (H) Inf Bde was harbouring in the village of STADENSEN when a surprise attack was launched by a strong force of enemy SP guns supported by Infantry. By 0430 hrs two SP guns approaching from behind houses had reached a position within 50 yds of the Arty Command Post and enemy infantry were under cover only 30 yds away. Gunner CAMERON from a front window hotly engaged them and successfully pinned the infantry down with fire from his Sten gun. Meanwhile the SP guns had got to within 30 yds of the Command Post. Seizing a PIAT and disregarding the retaliatory fire from enemy automatic guns he mounted the PIAT at the window and engaged the SPs. His position was at once spotted by the enemy who concentrated their fire at the window. Despite this Gunner CAMERON continued to give covering fire from the window for another PIAT to get into action which destroyed the SP guns. Almost immediately an enemy half-track opened fire from a nearby building. Gunner CAMERON undeterred by the enemy fire and the blazing buildings around him, remained at the window engaging the half-track. After two and a half hours having been forced to leave the burning command post he positioned himself with the PIAT destroying an enemy SP gun. Throughout this critical action Gunner CAMERON displayed complete disregard for his own safety and his courage was an inspiration to all around him." Signed by Montgomery.
