MILITARY  MEDAL

Date  of  Recommendation :  11 November 1916

 

‘ During attack on German Position  North of FLERS on morning of 5th November 1916 , acted as battalion runner.  He did his work with a cheerfulness and dogged determination highly praiseworthy.  He was always the first to volunteer for the dangerous job and went through several heavy barrages greatly helping the C. O. to keep in touch with the Units of attack.  He also had orders to help any wounded he came across , which he did faithfully.  He helped large numbers of wounded in NO MANS LAND to safety, and on going for stretchers  and bearers, found no bearers, but brought up the stretchers himself to a place where they could be easily got “.
