'At HARBONNIERES, East of VILLERS BRETONNEUX on 9th August 1918 this N.C.O. attended to the wounds of his two comrades under very heavy enemy shell fire though he himself had received a severe wound in the arm. He then delivered a despatch and remained on duty for three hours, ultimately being forced to leave his post owing to fresh haemorrhage from his wound. On this and on many previous occasions he has shown great courage and resource as a stretcher bearer. The devotion to duty of this N.C.O. is deserving of special recognition.'
