Citation Furthering the advance at Monigny, on the 9th October 1918, a gap existed between his platoon and the division on its left, with the result that the village of Ligny was not mopped up, and considerable difficulty was experienced from enemy snipers. He volunteered to get into the village and silence the snipers; a feat which he successfully accomplished, bringing back 14 prisoners. He set a splendid example of keeness, courage and devotion to duty.
