As an instance of this, during the operations of 28th/29th August 1918 he went forward and ably assisted in the reconnaissance for construction of a Foot-bridge across the SOMME in advance of our Infantry Posts, under machine gun and shell fire. He has been continually doing such fine work, and is worthy of the highest recognition.'
