|Fate||Returned to Australia
'During the operations east of YPRES on 4th October 1917, he was employed on the construction of a strong point on BECELAERE RIDGE. He rendered most valuable assistance by his coolness and cheerfulness under heavy shellfire that prevailed all day, in marking out the job and geting the men to work. Several times at great risk he went out to attend to comrades who had become casualties. Throughout the whole day he moved about from place to place giving advice and encouraging his party and set a fine example of devotion to duty.'
