Military Cross (July 16, 1918).
For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in action. When the troops on the right were forced to withdraw, exposing the flank, he led a party of about sixty men from various units and counter-attacked. He obtained a footing on the high ground, when our artillery put down a heavy barrage, and he was forced to withdraw owing to casualties among his men. He showed great dash in taking the ridge.
