On the morning of 24th August 1918 he led his section against the artillery and machine gun fire, which practically annihilated the attacking company.  He put a block in the trench and established a bombing post far ahead of the line consolidated by the attacking company.  He held this for two hours after the attacking company had withdrawn, and would not leave until definitely ordered to withdraw so that he and his section might take part in the afternoon attack by his company.  In this he again did fine work, he and his section capturing six machine guns.  Throughout he showed conspicuous courage and leadership
