For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty at Huwaish on 28 Oct 1918.

When his regiment was attacking superior enemy numbers he showed most marked coolness and disregard of danger under fire.

Though early wounded he remained at duty, and by his leadership and fine example in a brilliant attack, which caused heavy casualties on the enemy and was only checked within point-blank range of their guns, he inspired all ranks near him.

Later, in spite of his wounds, he again went into action.

He behaved most pluckily.
