M.M. for bravery in the field at Framerville on the Somme, August 14th, 1918. While occupying a forward position as signaller for his Battery, the observation post was subjected to heavy shell fire and blown in, burying him and one of his mates in the debris. Those fortunate enough to escape had to retire to the rear for shelter, thus rendering the position desperate. After an hour's hard struggle and with the aid of his tin hat only, he managed to extricate himself and then released his mate. Before leaving the position, however, he discovered an officer and an Australian soldier buried close by, and notwithstanding his own injuries he remained behind and succeeded in extricating them and saving their lives, being subjected to heavy gun fire all the time.
