Military Medal

'For coolness and devotion to duty. On the 26th August, 1918, during the advance east of BRAY, an enemy machine gun caused casualties and at one time held up the advance. Private CAPRARI, single handed, with his Lewis gun worked round the flank and put the gun out of action. This man was aggressive throughout the whole advance and showed splendid initiative and devotion to duty.'
