'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. When carrying out a low flying bombing patrol, he observed a hostile triplane, accompanied by three scouts. He fired a burst of thirty rounds at very close range, and the hostile plane turned over on its side and crashed. Then, seeing an enemy scout below him, he fired twenty rounds into its cockpit, and it fell down vertically out of control. In addition to these he has shot down one other enemy machine, which finally crashed to earth. His dash and daring have been at all times most marked.'

'On 4thOctober 1918, during attack on village of Montbrehain when leading two platoons of his company, he advanced 2,500 yards through strong enemy positions, gained the final objective and dug in under withering fire. When consolidating an objective he led out a Lewis gun team over exposed ground, and placed them in a commanding site to keep down enemy fire. He showed great courage and determined leadership throughout.'
