'During the attack on a wood near OMMIECOURT-les-CLERY, West of PERONNE on the 29th August 1918, a concealed enemy machine gun was holding up the advance of his platoon. This N.C.O. went forward alone and located it, and after throwing a bomb into the position, rushed the gun and killed the crew. Later, he collected stragglers, and taking charge of them established a post on the flank of his company, thus making the position secure. His courage and disregard for personal danger helped materially towards the success of the operation.'
