Military Medal
London Gazette, May 14th 1919 - Ledeghem.
Daily Orders, 1st Battalion, 28/10/1918.
For great gallantry and devotion to duty. On 3rd October 1918, during the
counterattack at Ledeghem when the enemy put down a heavy barrage these two
men were in an observation post in the station absolutely isolated and watching
the enemy through a hole in the roof. From this exposed position they sent back
most valuable information about the enemy's movements in Ledeghem and in rear
of it. During the whole of this time they were exposed to heavy machine gun fire
and were continually sniped at, but in spite of this they ceaselessly sniped the
enemy and caused him many casualties. They showed great coolness and a complete
contempt of danger.
