Military Cross
London Gazette, 1st February 1919 - Keiberg Ridge
For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during the advance east of Ypres on 29th September 1918, in command of the left flank company of the battalion. He led his company with dash and kept battalion headquarters well informed as to the situation. When the advance was held up at Keiberg Ridge by a 6 in. gun and two machine guns, he pushed his Lewis guns out to either flank, and made a direct attack by short rushes with a platoon capturing the gun and both machine guns. His prompt action led to the capture of the ridge.
