The enemy barrage caused a number of casualties. Private BULLIONS at once went out in the thick of the enemy barrage and attended to and brought in the wounded regardless of personal risk. Throughout the day he was conspicuous for his coolness and devotion to duty carrying wounded from the Aid Post to the Advanced Collecting Station and setting a splendid example of morale to other bearers.'
