'Work at Villaret on 18 September 1918.'
|Fate||Returned to Australia
'At VILLARET on 18th September, 1918, Sergeant ALLAN observed an enemy Machine Gun inflicting casualties on the troops on his right. Using very good judgment he worked round to a flank and caused the enemy team to flee. This allowed the line to advance without any opposition, and resulted in killing two of the enemy machine gun crew. Again during the advance he engaged another enemy machine gun, by charging the crew and causing them to flee in terror. The boldness displayed by this N.C.O., and lack of hesitation was a means of overcoming the enemy and making good our advance.'
