Captain, 1/8 Battalion, Royal Warwickshire Regiment, Territorial Force

Military Cross (1915).

For conspicuous gallantry and resource on many occasions when on patrol duty in front of the trenches, notably on the night of June 20-1, 1915, when he carried out a very daring reconnaissance close to the River Douve. From his knowledge of German he obtained very valuable information from the enemy’s conversation after passing over ground lit by flares and constantly swept by machine-gun fire.
