'Near MOUQUET FARM. For gallantry and devotion to duty as stretcher bearers. on the night of 14th/15th August, 1916, these brothers repeatedly bandaged and carried in wounded men under heavy shell and machine gun fire from No Man's Land. On the 15th August, 1916, through heavy shell fire they brought a serious case down to the Battalion Aid Post. Though much exhausted they volunteered again to go out in response to an urgent call to Battalion Headquarters passing through a heavy barrage and bandaging and helping wounded until completely breaking down from fatigue.'
