'On the 7th/8th and 9th June, 1917, during operations south east of MESSINES, this N.C.O. did remarkably fine work in the maintenance of communications from the Brigade Forward Station to the front line. Whilst repairing communications he was often under heavy hostile artillery fire. On the signallers and runners at one of the Company Headquarters becoming casualties he carried back important despatches through heavy barrages. By his willingness to undertake various tasks under heavy fire he set a fine example to his men.'
