Military Cross (Feb. 1, 1919).
For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty on Sept. 23, 1918, near Pilkem. While reconnoitring positions for trench-mortar batteries close to the front line, the officer with him was hit by machine-gun fire, which was continuous in the area. In spite of this, after careful reconnaissance, he got up the mortars and ammunition by night. He set a fine example under constant shell and machine-gun fire.
