On August 2, 1917, Samuel Frickleton's Victoria Cross was gazetted.

The citation reads:

"Although slightly wounded, Lance Corporal Frickleton dashed forward at the head of his section, pushed into our barrage, and personally destroyed with bombs an enemy machine-gun and its crew which were causing heavy casualties.

"He then attacked the second gun, killing the whole of the crew of 12. By the destruction of these two guns he undoubtedly saved his own and other units from very severe casualties, and his magnificent courage and gallantry ensured the capture of the objective.

"During the consolidation of the position he received a severe second wound. He set, throughout, a great example of heroism."
