When his platoon came under intense fire from the enemy located on a ridge to the front, six members of Sergeant Dolby's platoon were killed and a number wounded, including the platoon leader. Sergeant Dolby moved the wounded to safety and deployed the remainder of the platoon to engage the enemy. His dying platoon leader ordered him to withdraw the forward elements to rejoin the platoon. Despite the continuing enemy fire Dolby positioned able-bodied men to cover the withdrawal of the forward elements, assisted the wounded to the new position, and alone, attacked enemy positions until his ammunition was expended. Replenishing his ammunition, he returned to the area of most intense action, single-handedly killed three enemy machine gunners and neutralized the enemy fire. He defied enemy fire to carry a wounded soldier to safety, and then crawled within 50 meters of enemy bunkers and threw smoke grenades to mark them for air strikes. Although repeatedly under fire at close range from enemy snipers and automatic weapons, he directed artillery fire on the enemy and succeeded in silencing several enemy weapons. He remained in his exposed location until his comrades had displaced to more secure positions.
