'This N.C.O. was in charge of the party stationed at FATORY POST, north of FLERS. During aheavy bombardment on the 14th November, 1916, he set out toassist a wounded man who was observed some 300 yards away; he dressed his wounds and carried him back to the dressing station. The excellent example of courage and resource displayed by this man throughout the while time in the line did much to preserve the esprit de corps of the men.'
