'During operations east of Amiens, on 8th August 1918, he rendered invaluable service in establishing and maintaining communication between battalion headquarters and attacking troops. With two signallers, he followed closely in rear of the fourth wave, laying wires as he went forward, resulting in the establishing of telephonic communication immediately the objective was taken. On 9th August, during the attack on Framerville, and again on 11th August, he carried out his duties under heavy fire with the greatest zeal and efficiency and rendred most valuable service.'
