'On 20th September 1918, whilst the brigade was advancing from Lejjun to Jenin, a number of the enemy were observed in Bivouac in a wood. He, with two troops, galloped round to the rear of the enemy, and with the sword drove them out into the open, where the entire force, numbering 1,800 men, 200 mules, 200 horses, and a number of donkeys, surrendered. He showed great dash and initiative and set a fine example to his men.'
