'Worked carrying stretchers between the Cordial Factory at ZONNEBEKE to next Relay Post for 24 hours on 4th and 5th October, 1917, part of that time under heavy shell fire. He then worked for 12 hours from a R.A.P. in front of the Cordial Factory along a very difficult carry, subject almost continuously to a heavy fire until sent back by the R.M.O. on account of the intensity of the shelling. He continued working on our left carry and was wounded during the morning of 9th October, 1917. He refused to leave his work and carried on for several hours until 2 p.m. when he was ordered by the Warrant Officer to stop work. On 10th October, 1917, he returned to duty from the A.D.S. and worked on one of our "Back Carries". His wound was a shrapnel one of the shoulder and though it did not incapacitate him would have been quite sufficient for him to go off duty to the dressing station. His courage and determination were a direct stimulation to his men, who were all having a most trying time of it.'
