Bar to Military Cross
'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during an attack. He was in charge of a section of sappers accompanying one of the assaulting battalions, and on reching the final objective he saw a long range gun, an engine, and some ammunition coaches which were on fire on a siding some 200 yards beyond the front line. He immediately took two sappers forward under heavy machine gun fire, raised stem on the engine and shunted the burning waggons to another siding, and brought the gun back well within his lines. His determined courage and initiative resulted in the capture of a very valuable gun.
