Military Cross

'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. After heavy enemy bombardment had cut his lines in thirty eight places, he succeeded in keeping up communication between battalion headquarters and an advanced report centre, and, when signallers at the latter had been wounded, he worked the lines himself. He showed great courage and determination, and sent back most useful information.'
