Work near Framerville on 9 August 1918.
|Fate||Returned to Australia
'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty at Framerville near Amiens on the 9th August, 1918. When the Infantry had gone beyond their objective and exposed their flank, Sergeant Carrick quickly realising the danger moved two guns to the left flank under heavy Machine Gun fire and broke up a large party of the enemy who were trying to force their way into our flank. He saved the situation, and by silencing one enemy Machine Gun and keeping the sniping down, he enabled the infantry to withdraw to the correct line with few casualties, himself remaining in No Man's Land until the line had been consolidated.'
