M.C. London Gazette 2 December 1918:

'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. When six lorries each loaded with fifty rounds of ammunition were bombed, two being set on fire, this officer at once removed the four to a place of safety, then assisted by an N.C.O., extinguished the fire in one of the lorries. He then unloaded the ammunition amidst constant explosions from the burning lorry. His prompt action saved much loss of life and material.'
