Distinguished Conduct Medal
London Gazette, 10th January 1920 – Ledeghem.
For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during an enemy counterattack at Ledeghem on October 3rd 1918. When his Lewis Gun was destroyed by shell fire, he seized a captured machine gun, which was close by, and opened fire forming a defensive flank on the left of his battalion, and helped to break up the attack by the enfilade fire which he brought to bear with telling effect.
