London Gazette, June 18th 1918.
Action Date, April 14th 1917 – Monchy-le-Preux.
For bravery in the field. At Monchy 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 them on this part of the line.
