CITATION
Distinguished Service Order
Gazetted 1 January 1917, p29
This officer has done consistent good work ever since the 1st Battery was formed.  On many occasions, like othe BC's, he has had to observe under heavy fire.  Several times at Armentieres his battery was heavily shelled, and he acted with great coolness and decision.  On many occasions his battery has had to cut wire at close ranges.  He is an excellent BC and I consider he is worthy of recognition.  He commanded the battery in the heavu fighting at Gallipoli.
