Digitized Service Record

Source: June 1918 War Diary. TOS June 11.

Military Cross

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. During an attack he took his platoon forward through two very heavy barrages with few casualties. The prompt arrival of these reinforcements resulted in the attack being successful. Later, by establishing a report centre and getting in touch with the flank companies, he kept his company commander and battalion headquarters correctly informed of the situation. He set a fine example for his men.
