For most conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty east of Le Quesnoy on 4th November 1918.  He led his section with conspicuous skill, and kept it well under control.  At on stage the line was in danger of being held up by an enemy machine-gun post in a hedge, when he rushed forward alone and hacked a way through the obstructing hedge, which enabled his section to push through and envelop the post.  He did fine work
