He was awarded the Military Cross for his actions near Boesinghe on 31st July 1917. The citation reads "For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. Throughout a long and tiring day he showed the utmost contempt of danger, his organisation of aid posts and stretcher-bearers was beyond all praise., and his tireless energy and devotion in looking after the wounded were the admiration of every officer and NCO of the battalion, many of whom specially mentioned him to the CO on account of his gallantry." James died in Swindon. He was the son of Dr Thomas Brown Darling and Jessie Ann Walker. [Information sources: 1918 Army List, London Gazette and Niall R Scott]
