During an attack this N.C.O. went forward under very heavy fire to an exposed position in front of Vis-en-Artois on the 28th August, 1918, where he remained for eight hours keeping up a continuous observation of the enemy’s movements. The information he sent back was of the utmost importance and largely contributed to the subsequent success of the operation. His example of gallant endurance and determination was very fine.
