Military Cross

'On 25th September 1918, he was sent with two sections and Hotchkiss gun to secure the road leading north from Tiberias. This he did successfully, under machine gun fire. About 200 of the enemy, three motor cars, two motor lorries, and a number of horse transport were turned back to the town, and captured. It was largely due to his gallant and able leadership that the enemy withdrew his machine guns, and made it possible to enter the town.'
