      For most conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty, east of Le Quesnoy on 4th November, 1918. During the attack, whilst doing consistently good work throughout the day, he rushed two machine-gun posts and captured the garrisons. Later with two men he was instrumental in capturing a battery of 4.2’s and 77mm guns, taking prisoners three of the crew. His exceptional coolness and magnificent dash were a very fine example to the men in his platoon. London Gazette 12 March 1919, p3392, Citation, London Gazette 2 December 1919, p14913 AWMM
