Military Cross Citation

“ For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. After the enemy had secured a footing in a portion of our trench he organized a bombing attack with his platoon and cleared them out, and when his original bombers had sustained causalties and were too tired to throw bombs accurately, he collected a fresh squad of men from another unit and attacked again. His excellent leading, clear orders, and great coolness under fire, very largely contributed to the success of the attack.”
