'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. As lineman and telephonist he has on several occasions during his two years service as such in the field shown himself thoroughly reliable under the most trying circumstances, maintaining communications with the battery from the O.P. under shell fire of unusual intensity. On one occasion during the retirement of the guns of his battery his coolness under heavy fire was an example to all his party.'
