Royal Gazette of Newfoundland, December 31st 1918.
For marked gallantry and initiative. On the 14th October 1918, during the advance from Ledeghem towards the Lys, a hostile battery of field guns, firing at close range held up the attack. He led his platoon forward, and by able leadership captured the battery, four machine guns, and what was left of the gun crews, one officer and seven men. He then pushed on to the next farm and captured an ammunition wagon with transport and several more prisoners. He did fine work.
