  • Citation for Military Medal :

    M.M. Corporal, 2nd Field Company N.Z. Engineers
    L.G. 13 Nov 1918, p13401, Rec No 2221

    He was in charge of a carrying party at Hebuterne at 10 p.m. on 24th July 1918.
    While the party was accompanying G.S.wagon through the village a shell struck wagon, wounding 3 men of his party, the driver and a horse, and scattering the remainder of his party. This caused horses to bolt, and eventually they got entangled in a belt of barbed wire. Although still under shell fire this N.C.O. succeeded in extricating the horses from the wire after much difficulty. He then re-assembled his party, and despite continuance of shell fire succeeded in getting material delivered to the forward line. He set a fine example throughout.
