'During the operations east of YPRES on 4th October 1917 he was attached to the 1st Field Company Engineers and accompanied them to BECELAERE RIDGE. He rendered valuable assistance attending wounded and assisted his L/Cpl. in the most dangerous work in a very efficient and cool manner. After giving what assistance he could on the spot, he searched for stretchers and arranged for getting the casualties to the dressing station. He remained in the open under heavy shell and machine gun fire the whole time with absolute disregard to personal safety.'
