|Those Who Came After The Original 500|
Ernest was born in 1892 in Traytown and died in 1965.
He is buried in Glovertown Central Memorial Gardens Cemetery.
The following is taken from "The Fighting Newfoundlander"
by Col Nicholson, when talking about The
Battle of Bailleul.
"Three Newfoundlanders won the Distinguished Conduct Medal for their gallantry in the battle. Sergent (later R.S.M.) Ernest Gullicksen, of Traytown (who was also to receive the Belgian Croix de Guerre and the Medal of Honour with Bronze Swords), setting his men a superb example of coolness and pluck under fire, held on to his post until practically surrounded. His actions contributed greatly to "D" Company's resistance against the enemy: and subsequently, when ordered, he carried out a successful withdrawl, which was attended by remarkably few casualties to his men."
