'On 12th October 1917, East of YPRES, he displayed conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in action. this soldier was a stretcher bearer and stood out for his great courage and untiring energy under heavy shell fire and under most arduous conditions on account of the nature of the country. His work in organising parties under heavy fire and the cheerfulness with which he carried out his own work, were an inspiration to all, and he continued work almost incessantly until all cases had been evacuated.'
