Action Date, October 9th 1917 – Broembeek.
While a counterattack was coming in, this N.C.O.'s Lewis gun became out of order owing to a certain breakage while firing and his spare part bag having been previously blown up. He remembered seeing a damaged Lewis gun during the advance, so he went back, found the damaged gun and replaced the broken part of his own gun. During the whole attack he displayed the greatest bravery and coolness.
