Military Cross (Sept. 16, 1918).

When the commander of the company had been killed, this officer took command. Under very heavy fire he showed himself regardless of personal safety, visiting his sections, some of which were almost surrounded. It was largely owing to his exertions that six successive attacks by the enemy on our positions were annihilated by our fire. The skill with which he handled his company, his courage, and his initiative were admirable.
