For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He has rendered very valuable and conspicuous service as a sniper. On one occasion, during an attack by our troops, which was checked by enemy machine-gun fire, he dashed forward through an intense barrage, and, establishing himself singlehanded in a shell hole, engaged the enemy snipers 'and machine gunners till dark. His services on patrol also have yielded valuable results, and his example of coolness and resource has been worthy of the highest praise
