Action date, October 9th, 1917 – Broembeek.
For gallantry and devotion to duty. As a signaler during the battle for October 9th, 1917, this man worked incessantly under very heavy shell fire all day long laying and repairing wires. He exposed himself to danger but carried on his work regardless of any risk and went out from time to time to repair broken wire. He showed great willingness to do his duty and showed no hesitation whatever in facing a difficult situation.
