'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in the Battle of YPRES (Phase 5) 12th October 1917. Under a very heavy enemy artillery and machine gun fire this man repeatedly went out and bandaged wounded comrades carrying them back to the R.A.P.. He worked without rest for 48 hours, and although completely exhausted refused to leave the line. He set a fine example of coolness and courage to the remainder of the Company.'
