E. of VILLERS PLOUICH, 3rd to 5th December, 1917. For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in action. Although in a very exposed position with his company, he maintained it for many hours under a very heavy shell fire. Later, seeing a company of another unit on his left being hard pressed, he gallantly led a party of men across the open to attack the enemy on the flank, and was wounded while so doing.

BAR TO M.C.

BAC ST. MAUR, 6th September, 1917. He organised the final attack which drove the enemy out of his positions with great skill, and carried it out with courage and determination, capturing many prisoners and four machine guns. His conspicuous courage and devotion to duty inspired all the men of the company under his command.
