|Date published||25 August 1917|
|Citation||“For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in dashing forward on his own initiative and attacking an enemy post single-handed, which was firing on his platoon. This hostile fire was seriously delaying the work of the consolidation, and his gallant act in clearing the post, during which he killed three and captured three prisoners, saved his platoon many casualties.”|
