On July 4th 1940 he advanced to within 400 yards of the enemy’s defences to see if they were manned.

He came under very heavy fire from field and anti-tank guns but did not withdraw until he had inflicted heavy damage on enemy infantry.

Again on July 12th 1940 he showed dash and determination in engaging a lorry convoy at 400 yards range.

He has carried out consistently good work on patrol.
