London Gazette, 18th October 1917.
Action Date, 16th August 1917 – Steenbeek.
For bravery in the field. In the attack on the enemy near Langemarck on 16th August 1917 he was unfaltering in his zeal in attending the wounded and showed courageous coolness under heavy shell fire. It was mainly due to his personal efforts that the lines were swiftly cleared of the wounded. He was indefatigable in his work and inspired the wounded men with confidence by his splendid example of devotion to duty.
