As Headquarters Signaler on November 20th 1917, near Marcoing, he showed conspicuous gallantry and initiative during the whole attack. He worked very hard in keeping up communication with Brigade after his officer was wounded. On the morning of the 30th November he went in the front line with the remainder of his party and later on joined his remaining signalers at Headquarters, and when no wires could be laid to Brigade he took several messages himself. He also got a party together and under heavy machine gun fire got water and rations carried to the front line. By his bravery and example he helped others to go forward.
