'(Near Le Barque, 24-26 February 1917) Continuous and marked devotion to duty and coolness under fire as Lewis gunner.'
'Work at Villeret on 18 September 1918.'
|Returned to Australia
'At VILLERET on the 18th September, 1918, Sergeant LUCAS observed an enemy machine gun inflicting casualties on the troops on his right, using very cool judgment he worked round to a flank and caused the enemy Team to flee. This allowed the Line toadvance without any opposition and resulted in killing two of the machine gun crew. Again on the advance, he engaged another machine gun, by charging the crew and causing them to flee in terror. The boldness displayed by this N.C.O. and lack of hesitiation was a means of overcoming the enemy and making good our advance.'
