    For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. This officer fought his section in the open, engaging enemy infantry and tanks until they got within fifty yards, scoring a direct hit on a tank at this distance. He rallied the infantry, and only withdrew at the last moment, having himself to drive in a gun team when the driver was killed.
