'During the attack east of JEANCOURT on 18th September, 1918, Private HARRINGTON was a Company Signaller and showed wonderful devotion to duty. He was the only signaller left in his company and in spite of this, he was untiring in his efforts to keep his Company Commander in touch with Battalion Headquarters and flanking units. Until the first objective was reached, he voluntarily constituted himself as a runner and afterwards mended wires and remained at his phone under heavy shell fire until relieved.'
