'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He was in charge of a Lewis gun in a strong point which the enemy attempted to raid under cover of an intense bombardment. He at once opened Lewis gun fire, and when the gun jammed he attacked the enemy with bombs, and assisted in driving them off with considerable losses. His coolness and initiative were an inspiration to his comrades.'
