'During the period 25 February to 16 September 1918, he has been Company Sergeant Major. During February and March, round Messines, his coolness and leaderwhip greatly influenced the men under his command. During the attack in front of Villers-Bretonneux, on 8 August he and his company rapidly made ready for heavy traffic the road between that village and the front line. He also organized small parties and removed a number of land mines. Throughout by his gallantry and energy, he set a very fine example to those under him.'

'On the 29th September 1918 at BELLICOURT, C.S.M. JURD led a small party across to the left and captured a small party of about 20 Germans and a Machine Gun, which had to be attacked before it was taken. Immediately afterwards, when Lieutenant Whitfield called for Lewis Gunners to put out of action some enemy Machine Guns, C.S.M. JURD at once went forward and was wounded whilst endeavouring to put the Machine Guns out of action.'
