|Fate||Returned to Australia
'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty when the battery was heavily shelled, and one gun pit was set alight. Hearing cries, he rushed into the burning pit, knowing it contained a large number of charges and shells, rescued the corporal who was wounded in both legs, and also took to safety one man who was on fire. This officer, with two men, remained until they had extinguished the fire, and then returned to the wounded man.'

'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty as F.O.O. during operations on 29th September 1918, near Bellicourt. He, finding infantry to his front held up by an enemy machine gun est, organized a party, and with a captured enemy machine gun dashed across the open and outflanked the garrison, and, firing the gun himself, enabled the post to be captured, being wounded in three places. His fine courage and determination enabled the infantry to continue their advance.'
