Citation (22.3.1918) "For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in an attack. When the leading troops were suffering severe casualties he kept the men together by his splendid leadership. Though twice wounded, he led his men to the final objective, and stuck to his post until he collapsed from the effects of his wounds. His courage and example were an inspiration to all ranks."
