Awarded the Military Cross in the London Gazette of 11 January 1919 (for Mesopotamia).

"For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He went out under heavy fire and assisted many wounded men by dressing their wounds and placing them in positions of safety. Though wounded by shrapnel he continued at duty collecting ammunition from casualties for distribution to the Lewis guns which were running short, and reorganising the troops who had become scattered during the advance."
