Military Cross

'For conspicuous gallantry near Bellicourt, between 29th September and 1st October 1918. He collected and organized, under heavy fire, men who had become temporarily detached from their units during the fighting for the first objective. Later, he volunteered and led out two strong fighting patrols, which continually harassed the enemy. His cheerfulness throughout the operations coupled with his skilful leadership, were of great value.'
