'For bravery and devotion to duty. On the 8th August, 1918, during the attack on the enemy's position east of HAMEL, the Platoon of which Private FORSYTH was a member was suddenly attacked by an enemy machine gun from the rear. Private FORSYTH immediately dashed back, killed the gunner and captured the gun and the remainder of the crew. His prompt action enabled his Platoon to advance without further casualties. He displayed conspicuous bravery throughout the whole operation.'
