Victoria Cross
London Gazette, 1918.
Action Date, 1918.
By his magnificent example on four separate occasions he saved the line from breaking. When troops in front were falling back, he made a rapid reconnaissance on horseback, in full view of the enemy, under heavy machine-gun fire and close-range shell fire. He then organized and, still mounted, led a counterattack which was completely successful in re-establishing our line. When his horse was shot from under him he continued on foot. His horse was wounded three times and he was thrown five times.
