Meritorious Service Medal

'His untiring energy and keen alertness, under shell fire and adverse conditions, has been a splendid example to his comrades, and resulted in smoothness of working and safe transmission of all important telegrams and documents, especially during operations of 4th July 1918 and 8th August 1918, near Hamel, when his initiative and resource were most marked.'
