'At AUGER WOOD on the 11th August 1918 this N.C.O. displayed great tactical ability and clear headedness in the handling of his Lewis Gun Section. At one stage of the attack the Battalion was held up by an enemy strong post. Corporal YOUNG with remarkable bravery advanced alone with his gun under heavy enemy machine gun fire and by his own personal efforts enabled his platoon to rush the post and thereby allow the advance to continue. Later when the enemy counter attacked he again showed great dash and with his Lewis Gun engaged the enemy at close quarters inflicting heavy casualties and thwarting the attack.'
