    For Conspicuous Gallantry and Devotion to Duty. When directing fire of his battery from a railway truck he was seen by the enemy and heavily shelled for over an hour. Though he was knocked off the truck and the truck itself was hit several times, he continued to direct fire and by his fearlessness took a heavy toll of the enemy. Later a haystack from which he was directing the fire was hit repeatedly and he was knocked off it and badly shaken, but he continued to fire into the enemy until the infantry retired past the guns. His Gallantry and coolness were beyond all praise.
