Medals

Distinguished Conduct Medal

'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He has taken part in all the numerous actions in which his unit has been engaged, distinguishing himself by his coolness under fire and his disregard of danger in the performance of his responsible duties. His v aluable influence over the other N.C.O.'s and men of his company has been due as much to his personal example of cheerfulness and determination in the face of difficulty and danger as to the good discipline which he has easily maintained.'
