Citation For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. Often, when wiring had to be carried out under heavy shell fire, he took charge of officers’ parties, and it was mainly due to his courage, energy and determination that long lengths of wire entanglements were erected in a very short space of time. His utter disregard for his own safety set a fine example to his men.
