“On March 7th 1870 two Royal Humane Society medals were granted to Colour-Serjeant Denis Trehy of Captain Onslow's, K Company, and Private Charles Harman of Captain Hatchell's, F Company, for a gallant attempt to rescue Private Daniel Campion, of Captain Tod's Company, from drowning at the Pigeon House Fort, Dublin. The following is an extract from Major-General McMurdo, C.B., commanding the Infantry Brigade, Dublin, on the subject:
“In forwarding the enclosed report on the death of a soldier, Private Campion, 43rd Light Infantry, by drowning, I think it right to bring to special notice the gallant and courageous conduct of Colour-Serjeant Denis Trehy and Private Charles Harman of the same Regiment, who threw themselves into the water on a dark cold night after the drowning man, and, at the imminent hazard of their lives, succeeded in bringing the body to land. Admiration for the conduct of these gallant men must be my apology for a lengthy minute.””
