Military Cross citation: "For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He was wounded before the attack began, but remained and took command of his company, leading them to the second objective, and organised them for the final attack. He showed great initiative and good leadership, and courage and determination which were a magnificent example to his men." (Awarded 31 October 1917)
