London Gazette, July 9th 1917.
For bravery in the field. At Monchy-le-Preux on 14th April 1917, when an attack had failed and the enemy were advancing on the village he displayed the greatest gallantry as one of a small party hastily collected to oppose the hostile advance. This party maintained itself in the face of overwhelming odds, inflicted heavy losses on the enemy and completely checked him on this part of the line.
