Citation For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty on 14th/15th October 1918, before Courtrai, as battalion medical serjeant. When enemy shelling had set fire to battalion headquarters’ dugout and rendered about forty officers and men helpless by gas and fumes, he helped to drag officers and men out until the whole place was clear. Later, when several casualties occurred, he went forward, dressed them, and carried them back to safety. Later, he on his own initiative brought wounded out of the village of Salines, which was then being very heavily shelled.
