'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty near LIHONS from 15th August 1918 to 19th August 1918. This N.C.O. was in charge of a bombing block within 25 yards of the enemy. On the evening of the 16th the enemy under cover of showers of bombs and rifle grenades made four distinct attempts to rush the post. Owing to the bravery and determination of this N.C.O. each attack was beaten off with loss to the enemy. He organised his bombers very skilfully and harassed the enemy unceasingly.'
