"For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty while commanding a platoon in a part of the line which was essentially important in view of future operations. The enemy put down a very heavy barrage, and was seen to be advancing behind it, when he by his personal example and encouragement to the men succeeded in beating off the enemy. When the only other officer at this important point was killed, he carried on by himself, displaying great coolness and determination at all times during the heaviest fire."
