'During the period from the 3rd to the 10th July, 1917, inclusive when his Battalion was in the trenches in the MESSINES Sector, this man was in charge of Ration Wagons returning from WHITE SPOT COTTAGE on the night 9th/10th July, 1917. Whilst coming down the track from MESSINES RIDGE heavy enemy gun fire opened upon the track, resulting in one driver being wounded, one mule killed, and one mule injured. It was then that this man showed great courage and coolness. Although shells were falling around the spot continuously, he dressed the wounds of the driver, and got him into safety in the dug out. He then returned to the scene of the accident and cleared the track of the wagon and dead mule, thereby saving a serious congestion of traffic. He has on previous occasions shown great coolness and courage in getting drivers and wagons through serious trouble.'
