'At BOIS DE CHREPY on the 10th August 1918 after his platoon commander had become a casualty he immediately proceeded to collect and organise for a further advance. While the advance was temporarily checked owing to terrific machine gun fire this N.C.O. used his platoon with great dash and ability, and engaged enemy machine gun post which was holding the line up. By this means and by the careful manner in which it was carried out, fire from that quarter was checked, and the line was allowed to advance. During the counter attack at 7 a.m. on the 11th instant this N.C.O. again displayed remarkable ability and coolness setting a fine example throughout the whole operations to those under him and to all with whom he came in contact.'
