Medals

Meritorious Service Medal

'This N.C.O. has at all times carried out his duties in regard to the care and maintenance of the Guns and Howitzers of the 13th Australia Field Artillery Brigade in a thoroughly efficient manner. He has on several occasions examined and worked on the Battery guns under shell fire. During the operations in which this Brigade has engaged, principally in August 1918, he has, by his skilful and hard work, and strict devotion to duty succeeded in keeping many guns and Howitzers in action, which otherwise would have reduced the fire power of this Brigade. This N.C.O.'s excellent conduct and devotion to duty is deserving of special recognition.'
