DSO London Gazette 1 February 1945 'For gallant and distinguished service in North West Europe'

Temporary Lieutenant Colonel Robert Albert Glanville Bingley, 11th Hussars commanding Inns of Court Regiment

'Lt Colonel Bingley commands the Inns of Court Regiment. A detatchment of this Unit, under his personal command, landed in NORMANDY on D Day and achieved a very deep penetration of the enemy defences, reaching TILLY SIR SEULLE. During this action he came under very heavy fire and his detatchment suffered heavy losses. Ever since this day his Unit has been engaged in battle. Every detatchment has shown the same thrust and determination as was displayed by Lt Colonel BINGLEY to penetrate the enemy defences and disorganise and demoralise his rear areas. I consider this spirit due to the splendid example set by Lt Colonel BINGLEY both on D Day and thereafter and stronly recommend that (if he has not already been recommended) he be awarded the DSO'.

Inns of Court were the only Armoured Car unit (Daimler Dingo Armoured Cars) to land on D Day. The main party consisting of C Squadron plus a small HQ Group, with attached Royal Engineers in halftracked vehicles, landed on Juno Beach near Graye Sur Mer early on June 6th, tasked to infiltrate some 30 miles inland to demolish bridges over the Orne river so as to prevent counterattack by German armoured units.
