The citation for the D.C.M. published in the London Gazette reads, "For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. Under an intense and concentrated bombardment of our trenches, he stood up on the parapet and endeavored to dig out men who had been buried by shellfire. He did not once hesitate, though others were being killed and wounded around him, and his own chance of surviving seemed slight, but worked steadily for twenty minutes until all the wounded had been extricated and removed. But for his heroic conduct at least three of them would have died."
