'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty near Chignolles, on 23rd August 1918. He was in charge of two companies detailed to outflank and capture Froissy Wood. He led his men with great dash under heavy machine gun fire, outflanking and overcoming all resistance until he gained his objective. The success of the operation was largely due to his tenacity and coolness.'
