'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He got his company into the assembly position with great skill, and showed excellent leadership during the advance, capturing a machine gun and putting the crew out of action. His courage and coolness were largely responsible for the excellent work done by his company in the consolidation of the final objective, and in repulsing several enemy counter attacks.'
