For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during a hostile raid on our trenches. In the face of the heaviest shelling he organised a party and led it up the trench, driving the enemy out of the position. Two days later he commanded a portion of our raiding party, and displayed splendid leadership and fearlessness in attempting to capture the enemy strong post, which he could have done had there been sufficient time. He went forward repeatedly regardless of his own safety, doing everything that was possible for a man to do, and when operations were over he carried a wounded man back 500 yards under severe machine-gun fire.
