'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during the operations east of HAMEL from 8th to 11th August, 1918. This soldier is a Company Scout and throughout the attack was in front of his Company. At one point he attacked with great daring single-handed and captured 10 prisoners. Later during a minor operation when his Company advanced 1000 yards he acted as part of a screen and secured valuable information for his Company Commander. At all times he is a bold and fearless scout and he set a splendid example of coolness and bravery during the whole operation.'
