For conspicuous gallantry during an attack. He kept his Lewis gun section together, and inspired them by his cool behaviour until they had all become casualties. Later he collected remnants of companies and formed them into a series of posts, preventing the line being penetrated. Later, when seriously wounded, he remained at duty encouraging his men. He set a splendid example of cool courage and devotion to duty.
