'(E. of Ypres) Great gallantry and devotion to duty under fire while in charge of Horse Ambulance Wagon.'
|Fate||Returned to Australia
'For conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty while in charge of a Horse Ambulance Wagon at BELLEVARDE RIDGE, near YPRES, on 6th October 1917. When returning to BIRR CROSS ROADS with a load of wounded, a large shell landed on the wooden road just ahead of the team, and rendered the road impassable. Leaving his horses in charge of the orderly, he immediately set to work under heavy shell fire to rebuild the road, and after working for over half an hour he managed to make the road passable, and thus was enabled to evacuate his load of wounded. He displayed the greatest gallantry while on duty under shell fire, and although subjected to many difficulties and dangers, he managed by hard work and devotion to duty, to maintain this link in the line of evacuation of wounded of this Division.'
