‘For conspicuous gallantry and good leadership. He led his company with great dash in the face of heavy machine-gun fire, taking many of the enemy prisoners and capturing five machine guns. On the following day he consolidated and held a position with a mixed body of troops, with a few officers and N.C.Os., going out alone on several occasions to bring in his wounded. Throughout the operations his courage and bold leadership inspired his men with the greatest confidence.’

He collected various scattered parties and placed them in positions where there were gaps. During this critical consolidation he set a splendid example to all the posts that he visited by his utter disregard of danger.’
