Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Military Medal

'During the period between 24-30 September and while on duty Stretcher Bearing. This mans work has been of exceptionally fine. With a total disregard of danger, and constant and never failing coolness and courage under heavy shell fire he has set a splendid example to his comrades. His work in former actions has been the same. This devotion to duty, gallantry and general good work all well worthy of recognition.'
