'Collingwood showed much bravery and coolness when the enemy counter-attacked at Lone Pine during the afternoon and night of 7th August, and although exhausted from throwing bombs, stuck to his post which was being heavily bombed by the enemy, his coolness and bravery helped to keep the moral of our troops.'

'In the operations east of Hesbecourt, on 18th-21st Deptember 1918, he commanded the left attacking company. When his left platoon was held by machine gun fire, he skilfully worked his headquarters staff round the flank of the enemy positon, capturing the garrison of fifty men and three heavy machine guns. In reaching the objective, he personally re-organized what was left of his company and established and consolidated his position on the brown line. He showed fine courage and leadership throughout.'
