      MC. 'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in an attack. He led four machine guns through a heavy barrage and frequently brought them into action in support of the advancing infantry. When one of his guns was put out of action he promptly substituted a captured enemy gun, and with this he engaged and silenced an enemy machine gun which was holding up the advance. He set his men a splendid example of courage and confidence throughout.' AWMM
