There are two sheets of paper. A smaller piece with handwriting on top of a larger sheet that has multiple lines of typewritten words. The top three lines are the only ones that are completely visible. The smaller of the two sheets had a rectangle shaped piece of paper both pinned and paper clipped to the top left corner obscuring some of the words. 

 Largest paper..TALES OF THE V.C.

Company Sergeant Major H. DANIELS, 2nd Rifle Brigade.

Corporal C. NOBLE. 2nd Rifle Brigade

 ...Smaller paper

Tales of the V.C     ...The following appears for be from a stamp 1295-8 MAR 1918

                                           C.S.M., H. DANIELS 2nd Rifle Brigade

                                            CpL      C. NOBLE      "   "            "

 ..Something behind the paper appears to by crossed out.  Beside it in smaller writing and different ink .   BY Lieut. J.P Lloyd

 ...First few words of the first 6 lines of writing are obscured by the a rectangle of paper with 1293 stamped on it. There appears to be words written on the lower portion but because the left bottom corner of the paper is folded up on itself the words can not be made out.

 

       missingarch 1916, the third day of the battle of NEUVE

C missing soldiers of the Grenadier Guards were each

awamissingtoria Cross for their bravery in the assault

by the missingion on the  German position in front of the

PIETREmissing On the same day, farther South C.S.M.,

Daniel anmissingl Noble, both of the 2nd Rifle Brigade, won

the same high honour  near the BOIS DU BIEZ.

About five o'clock in the afternoon, the 2nd Rifle Brigade

left their trenches to continue the attack.   Several Pathways had 

already been cut -through their own wire, but there were too

few of them. Hardly had the first wave breasted the parapet,

when the enemy opened a murderous fire with rifle and

machine gun. The men raced for the gaps in the wire,

and crowded into these. As they pushed their way through

the storm caught them. In a few moments the narrow

lanes were choked with the dead and dying.

Then, when it seemed as if the attack must fail, C. S. M.,

Daniels and Cpl Noble volunteered to go out-into that

hell of flying bullets and complete the cutting of the wire.

Armed with wire-cutters they crawled out, and began their

task.

These gallant men had not lain out there long, before both

were wounded. Badly hit as they were (Daniels' leg was

broken, and Noble shortly afterwards died of his wounds) they

would not yield as long as they had the strength to continue.

Strand after strand fell to the ground before their nimble

fingers, until at last they had cleared a broad avenue
