'This N.C.O. has shown remarkable coolness, energy and devotion to duty during active operations from 8th August, 1918 to 4th September, 1918 under frequent heavy shell fire. On the 8th August 1918 at WARFUSEE the town was heavily shelled, Corporal McFADYEN organised the traffic during the shelling in such a way which avoided any congestion and thereby materially assisted in the bringing up of Guns and Ammunition. He always renders gallant and devoted service.'
