      For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in the Field east of Le Quesnoy on the 4th November 1918. This NCO commanded his platoon during the operations on this date with most conspicuous ability and initiative throughout. When at the objective and the barrage was dying away his platoon encountered a hostile battery endeavouring to retire. Quickly realising the situation and with exceptional promptness, he organised a party which, under his leadership, captured the battery and its personnel, which, but to his initiative, would have been able to withdraw. His conduct throughout was conspicuous for personal and fine powers of leadership. London Gazette 17 June 1919, p7700, Rec No 3163 AWMM
