'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty as a runner. During an ememy attack he was sent with another runner to get in touch with posts on the right that were being hard pressed. One post turned out to be occupied by the enemy, who surrounded the runners. He, however, bombed his way out and got in touch with the other post. Though again surrounded on his way back, he got through and delivered his message to the company commander.'
