D.C.M., London Gazette, 26th June 1917: ‘For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. Whilst in charge of a working party he showed great coolness and courage under heavy shell-fire during which he was wounded in several places and buried twice, notwithstanding this he carried on with his work and then skilfully withdrew his party.’
