MILITARY  MEDAL

Date  of  Recommendation : 16 November 1917

 

” 8th  November 1917.  For conspicuous gallantry in the field.  On the right flank this man galloped into the retiring Turks and took the surrender of one officer, nine men and one Machine Gun ,with two complete packs.  His action and dash dumbfounded the enemy and I consider him worthy of special award.  He was detached from his troop at the time  as flank guard and his action single handedly speaks for itself “.
