'For conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty at BROODSEINDE RIDGE East of YPRES on 4th October, 1917. This N.C.O. was sent with an advance party to reconnoitre and guide the Company into position in the forward area. The party was broken up by heavy enemy barrage and the greater part became casualties. Sgt. JOEL pressed forward reconnoitred and alone guided 4 platoons to their positions. His courage and skill as a guide saved his Company heavy casualties. During the advance of his platoon to the 2nd objective he did excellent work in reorganising at great personal danger. His cheerfulness and bravery were beyond praise.'
