Citation For conspicuous gallantry and initiative near Salines on 14th October 1918. When the line was held up by machine-gun fire from the houses in the village, he dashed forward with his Lewis gun and brought enfilade fire to bear on the enemy, forcing them to withdraw. As the enemy retired, he rushed after them, firing his gun from the hip, and succeeded in killing four. His prompt act of courage enabled the advance to continue.
