For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He was the first to come forward when volunteers were called for to retake part of a trench which had been lost. He, leading a squad along the trench, succeeded in rescuing a wounded officer who had been left behind. Though on first encountering an enemy bombing party he withdrew through lack of bombs, he procured some of the latter and eventually drove back the hostile party, killing two of the latter himself.
