On reaching the objective he got his men digging in and very soon had a strong position made, and his platoon in a very good position with an excellent field of fire. He only had his officer for a short time after reaching his objective, but he pushed on with the work. He was the means of preventing the enemy from counterattacking on that part of the line.
