"For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during an attack east of Masnieres (October 1918). Being forced to place his dressing station in a spot constantly shelled by the enemy for 36 hours, he continued to dress wounded whilst shells fell on the station. He attended not only his own battalion, but those of three other battalions and worked continually without sleep all the time. He displayed high courage and resource and was the means of saving many lives."
