Distinguished Service Order

'For conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty. When in charge of advanced collecting and forwarding posts, his total disregard of danger under a terrific hail of gas shells, high explosives, and shrapnel fire, gained him the confidence of all ranks, and greatly assisted the evacuation of the wounded. Later, although wounded and partly gassed, he refused to leave his post, and his bravery and devotion saved a very critical situation.'
