CITATION
Distinguished Conduct Medal
For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty.  He was in charge of pack animals carrying ammunition and supplies forward.  On two occasions, when his animals could get no further owing to the state of the ground, he organised carrying-parties and succeeded in delivering the ammunition and supplies at their destination.  He showed the greatest determination and initiative, and his efforts were the direct cause of the success of the machine guns in the operations
