Pinned down and cornered on a peninsula Arthur Jackson was asked to make a daring one man assault on an enemy bunker. After successfully crossing a hail of enemy fire and destroying the bunker he continued to single-handedly engage and destroy 12 enemy positions which led to the success of his unit's operation.
