Military Cross

'In the operations east of Hesbecourt, on 18th September 1918, he, as a platoon commander, showed marked gallantry and leadership. He led his platoon against three neemy posts which held up a sector of the advance, and dealt with them in such a quick and efficient manner that his efforts enabled the advance to continue. At one stage he guided a tank to an enemy machine gun next, and the tank wiped out the garrison and accounted for fifteen dead and the capture of four heavy machine guns. This action enabled the left company to gain its objective.'
