'On 1st September, 1918, during operations North of PERONNE, Sergeant MORGAN displayed exceptional courage and initiative in the manner in which he handled his Platoon. At one stage of the advance, the Platoon on his right was temporarily held up by the fire from a heavily maned German trench. Sergeant MORGAN realising the position, moved forward with Private NAYLOR, and mopped up the trench concerned by a rear and frontal attack. By his prompt action, Sergeant MORGAN undoubtedly saved us many casualties, and in addition, made it possible for his flank platoon to advance on to the general line. Throughout the whole operation he maintained an attitude of courage and cheerfulness most inspiring to his men.'
