The first night, under a very heavy enemy bombardment, he kept his men well together. In the morning he assisted in the selection of a line under machine gun fire and sniping. Later, when touch with the left was lost, he went out and reained communication. On the same morning, he and three men captured one officer and fifty men outside a village.'
