Bar to Military Cross
'On 29th September 1918, at Bony, he was in charge of three sections working on forward road, under heavy enemy shell and machine gun fire. owing to the infantry advice being checked the position on the forward road became very involved. By his courage and resourcefulness in patrolling the road and organizing the work he succeeded in carrying the work forward; thus enabling the subsequent attacks to be carried through. He set a fine example to his men at a time when casualties were heavy, and rendered throughout the day very valuable and accurate reports.'
