As a 22 years old Lance-Corporal in 8 Squadron, Machine Gun Corps on 11/04/1917 at Monchy-le-Preux, France, under intense fire, Lance-Corporal Mugford got his machine-gun into a forward, very exposed position from which he dealt very effectively with the enemy. Almost immediately his No. 2 was killed and he was severely wounded. He was ordered to go to a new position and then have his wounds dressed but this he refused to do, staying to inflict severe damage on the enemy with his gun. Soon afterwards a shell broke both his legs, but he still remained with his gun and when he was at last removed to the dressing station he was again wounded. His Victoria Cross is displayed at the Imperial War Museum (London, England) and there is a memorial to him in Chelmsford Cathedral. A younger brother, Pte Percy Mugford, of the 4th Battalion Essex Regiment, who had been reported ‘wounded and missing' following the First Battle of Gaza on 26 March 1917, was KIA. He is commemorated on the Jerusalem Memorial.
