'Work at Zonnebeke on 19 October 1917.'
'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. at ZONNEBEKE on the 19th October, 1917, under very heavy shell fire, he went to the assistance of, and dressed the wounds of several wounded infantry soldiers. Under continued heavy shell fire he assisted them over very boggy ground to the dressing station, returning and organising stretcher parties and making repeated journeys through the barrage until all the injured men were removed. The gallant and entirely voluntary service of this N.C.O. undoubtedly saved many lives on this occasion.'
