'On the 8th August, 1918, at CERISY, this man was the Battery Water Cart driver. He displayed great courage and devotion to duty. Under very heavy shell fire by day and bombing by night, this driver made long trips to the River SOMME to bring water to the battery, and never once failed to keep the battery supplied. He showed wonderful courage and disregard for personal safety.'
