'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. When the other officers of his company became casualties he organized the company, which was supplying carrying parties, and succeeded in keeping the forward area supplied. He personally led parties through heavy barrages with utter contempt of danger. Later, he took over part of the front line, and consolidated the position. His example throughout the operations was splendid and greatly contributed to the success achieved.'
