Gazetted 17 April 1917, p3700, Rec No 562.
At Bois Grenier on the morning of 21st February 1917, during a raid by the 2nd Auckland Batt. a Minnewerfer bursting on the parapet put this
NCO’s mortar out of action. As the fire out of the mortar had to continue for 45 minutes, this NCO, exposing himself to much risk, had to
double across an area which was being heavily shelled to obtain the necessary parts and was thus able to repair his mortar and continue
firing. His behaviour throughout showed great courage. He has always set a splendid example to the men under him, and has previously
been recommended for conspicuous bravery under fire.
