Action, 29/9/18.
During the attack on Keiberg Ridge he voluntarily went forward 100 yards in advance of his company to reconnoitre thick grass and bushes in front. He came upon three enemy snipers all of which he bayoneted. Later on he carried an important message back to Battalion Headquarters through heavy machine gun and shell fire. In the afternoon of the same day, although wounded, he carried on with his platoon until he fell weak from loss of blood.
