This N.C.O. was left in charge of the Platoon owing to the Platoon Commander and Platoon Sergeant becoming casualties. He displayed great coolness and initiative. The position he occupied was badly shelled. He took his platoon forward into shell-holes, saving many casualties, as the position he previously occupied was completely destroyed.
