547452 Sergeant George Overend
1497643 Leading Aircraftman Fredrick Canton
Overend and Caton had been guarding their LAA site on the small island of Ponza off the west coast of Italy. An American military vessel had become stricken on the rocks 200ft below their cliff top position. Notified by Italian civilians, both then bravely descended the cliffs, and began pulling survivors out of the water on to the rocks. There was a heavy gale and Caton was washed into the sea at least twice, his perseverance along with Overend for a period of over 5 hours contributed to saving of 140 American troops.
There are no known photos of LAC Caton.
