    MM. London Gazette, 16 August 1917, p8430, Rec No 844: On 6th June 1917 along the Powse Boyd Tramline in Ploegsteert Wood, when engaged in getting up ammunition to New Zealand Divisional Artillery Batteries in the vicinity this N.C.O. displayed great courage under heavy shellfire, maintaining the supply under great difficulty, in the handling of mules and encouraging of men. Owing to the batteries ahead having lost much ammunition by explosion, the supply was urgent, and when the line was blown out in several places, after placing the personnel and animals in saftey, he with Bombardier Turner returned to assist the maintenance gang in relaying same. This incident is only one of the many such which he has performed while on more or less continuous duty, supplying shell to batteries in the Southern System during the last three weeks AWMM
