'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during an attack. At a critical stage, when his men were momentarily held up by heavy bombing from the flank posts, he rushed the position with a small party and killed the garrison. Later, at the head of his men, after strenuous fighting, he gained the final objective. He set a splendid example of pluck and enthusiasm to all ranks.'
