'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. On the night 19th/20th October, 1917, near ZONNEBEKE, after delivering a set of springs to his battery under hevy fire, on returning, driver ARNOTT met a party of the D.A.C. loaded with ammunition for his battery. Knowing that this party would have great difficulty, in the darkness, in reaching the battery, he voluntarily turned back and conducted them to his battery under heavy fire. This gallant and timely service not only ensured the delivery of urgently required ammunition but set a splendid example of devotion to duty.'
