This man showed great coolness, devotion to duty, and initiative throughout all engagements.

In particular at SIDI REZEGH on 21.11.41 when, his own tank being knocked out, he got into a damaged tank that had been abandoned, repaired it and kept it going throughout two engagements.

Again on the night of 24.11.41 his tank was again hit and he himself wounded; yet he refused to evacuate it until he had made every attempt to get it going again. He then walked unassisted to the nearest vehicle.
