M.C. Citation, London Gazette 11.10.1918

During a minor enterprise on the enemy’s post this officer was wounded, but he declined to withdraw, sending back other wounde men, whilst he himself waited outside the post to prevent the enemy returning. He displayed conspicuous gallantry and endurance throughout the operation.
