'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He carried out a daring reconnaissance of the forward area, and marked out assembly positions for the attack by his battalion, in front of the most advanced positions. When all the officers in his company had become casualties he took command, and rendered most valuable service during the consolidation, organizing carrying parties with supplies for the whole line. He showed the greatest gallantry and good leadership.''
