Work near Le Verguier on 18 September 1918.
|Fate||Returned to Australia
'At 4.30 p.m. on 18th September 1918 near LE VERGUIER the enemy put a sudden burst of H.E. and gas on the temporary wagon lines of this battery. Personnel and horses were evacuated. It became necessary to return for the gun limbers. Driver DAVIS with his horses went back for his limber and one of his horses was killed. He procured a fresh horse and returned for the limber. On moving off the swingle bar hook broke. Driver DAVIS went away, fixed the swingle bar with wire and again went back for the limber and eventually succeeded in getting it out. This man has always been noted for his bravery and determination and his conduct on this occasion through heaviest fire and in gas was beyond praise.'
