Distinguished Service Order
'For conspicuous gallantry on 8th August, 1918, near Cherisy. With a small party he reconnoitred, and, under machine gun fire, crossed bridges to the enemy's side. While examining one of the bridges the sapper whom he took with him was wounded, and he carried this man for 200 yards under fire to a place of safety. After getting his pontoons up to the water-side under heavy fire, he furnished an accurate report on the state of the roads and bridges in the neighbourhood to his officer commanding. His coolness and excellent work under trying circumstances were most praiseworthy.'
