Letter of Commendation
Presented by the Brigade commander of the 16th Air Assault brigade to
Acting Lance Corporal Cullen


In recognition of outstanding service and heroic actions during Operation Sea Lion II February 10th 2019, Acting Lance Corporal Cullen is presented with the 16th Air Assault Brigade commander's letter of commendation.

During Operation Sea Lion II and the battle of 'Hill 88', Acting Lance Corporal Cullen held the entire west of the hillside on his own. On multiple occasions the enemy rushed his position as he with great courage and selflessness repeatedly pushed them back, calling for grenades to be thrown on the other side of the rock he was hunkered behind. Toward the end of the engagement, Cullen was eventually overrun and badly wounded. Without his actions there is no doubt the enemy would have retaken the hill which would have significantly changed the outcome of the operation. Acting Lance Corporal Cullen's actions bring great credit upon himself, 16th Air Assault Brigade and the British Armed Forces.
