'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. When advancing during a raid on a hostile post he discovered that the wire in front of the post had been repaired. Having searched for and discovered a patrol track through the wire, he led two of his men through the gap, and, charged the enemy post, capturing three prisoners. He then withdrew his party without suffering any casualties. His prompt decision and dashing action insured the success of the enterprise.'
