CITATION
Distinguished Conduct Medal
For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty when in charge of a forward dump during an action.  When the officer in charge of the carrying party and most of his men became casualties he collected men and kept the party going, and did excellent work for three days in seeing to the requirements for the battalion, being most of the time under heavy shell fire.  It was by his personal example of leadership and contempt of danger that supplies were got up to the front line
