Military Cross: Gazette issue 30813

Military Cross; For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. When all communications were cut and runners could not get through to the batteries, this officer volunteered to go forward, and at great personal risk went round all the batteries, collecting information and arranging for reinforcements. Later, while reconnoitring new positions, he was severely wounded.
