CITATION
Distinguished Conduct Medal
Egypt, November 1917
For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. When his officer was wounded early in the attack he took command of his section and pushed forward and covered the advance with his fire.  When the enemy counter-attacked he rushed his gun forward to a ridge under intense fire, and completely broke up the leading waves of the attack and inflicted heavy casualties on the remainder as they retired.  He set a splendid example of courage and initiative
