Let $p$ be a prime, $G$ a finite $\mathcal K_{p}$-group $S$ a Sylow $p$-subgroup of $G$ and $Q$ a large subgroup of $G$ in $S$ (i.e., $C_{G}(Q) ≤Q$ and $N_{G}(U) ≤N_{G}(Q)$ for $1 ≠U ≤C_{G}(Q)$). Let $L$ be any subgroup of $G$ with $S≤L$, $O_{p}(L)≠1$ and $Q⋬L$. In this paper we determine the action of $L$ on the largest elementary abelian normal $p$-reduced $p$-subgroup $Y_{L}$ of $L$.
