'During the operations east of YPRES on 20th September, 1917, this man was employed as a runner. He was continually going between advanced lines and Brigade Headquarters and in spite of heavy shelling delivered messages. On one occasions his fellow runner was badly wounded and CLARK carried him on his shoulders until assistance was obtained when he delivered his messages and returned alone through heavy shelling to the forward positions.'
