'At BROODSEINDE RIDGE east of YPRES on 4/10th October, 1917, Cpl. REYNOLDS was in charge of ration parties making trips to the front line. On all occasions he displayed fine leadership and marked devotion to duty. Though numerous journeys were made through heavy enemy barrages and many of the parties wounded, Cpl. REYNOLDS never once failed in his mission and rations were always safely delivered. Eventually he himself was wounded but carried on until the Company rations reached their destinations.'
