Action Date, October 9th 1917 – Broembeek
On reaching the objective he went forward and directed his Lewis gun fire on snipers who were inflicting casualties on our men as they consolidated. When the enemy moved down the valley of the Broembeek he directed the fire of his Lewis gun so accurately that he must have accounted for at least 100 of the enemy. When the enemy counterattacked, he not only directed his Lewis gun fire but used his own rifle with good effect.
