Tales of valour

Military Cross

For conspicuous gallantry and initiative on 30.8.1918, during the advance on Riencourt. This Officer showed exceptional skill and boldness in handling his guns; though subjected to heavy artillery and M.G. fire he succeeded in pushing forward to very exposed positions, whence he was enabled to direct heavy fire on the enemy, very materially assisting our Infantry who were being held up.
