Footnotes

  • D.S.O. London Gazette 1.2.1919.

    For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during operations on the Piave between October 27th and 29th, 1918, especially on the morning of the 27th when in charge of stretcher-bearers. He crossed to the right bank of the Piave immediately behind the infantry under very heavy fire, and supervised the collection and evacuation of the wounded under great difficulties, having to ford the river several times. He set a very fine example to all under him by his untiring energy and total disregard for his own safety.

    M.C. London Gazette 16.8.1917.

    For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty when in command of a bearer party. He led his men repeatedly through heavy hostile barrage until all the wounded had been carried to safety. He was fearless in the place of danger, and by his coolness and courage he showed a splendid example to his men.

    Bar to the M.C. London Gazette 18.3.1918.

    For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. When in charge of the evacuation of the wounded he from time to time led his stretcher-bearers and cleared the wounded, although exposed to fire from snipers. He worked untiringly and incessantly for three days without sleep, and it was due very greatly to his efforts that the regimental aid posts were kept clear of wounded, and cases quickly evacuated to the advanced dressing station. He is fearless in the face of danger, and by his splendid courage and example he inspired confidence in his men.

    M.I.D. London Gazette 4.1.1917.
