'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He led a daylight raid into the enemy trenches in the face of determined opposition, during which he was wounded himself. He, however, continued to lead his men with the greatest dash and success, killing and wounding mahy of the enemy and eventually retiring with his party to our lines under heavy fire. He set a splendid example to his men.'

'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in an attack. He led his men forward to the final objective, capturing enemy strong posts, and two machine guns. That night, when the enemy counter attacked, he successfully ejected them from a portion of the line they had entered, and further pushed his success forward against an enemy strong post, capturing several machine guns, much material, and one officer and 50 other ranks, besides inflicting heavy casualties on the enemy. Throughout he set a fine example of courage and good leadership to his men.'
