For conspicuous gallantry & devotion to duty during an attack on the Hindenburg Line N of Bellicourt on 30th Sep 1916. During the first stages of the attack this brave NCO showed utter disregard of danger in spite of heavy fire from both flanks which was causing numerous casualties. He advanced quickly and by his determined & resolute manner inspired so many of his comrades in the immediate vicinity that they followed him to the final assault, a number of the enemy were killed and the remainder put to flight. During a strong counter attack which was launched by the enemy later, he so controlled & directed fire that none of the enemy reached the trench in his vicinity. During the whole of the operations, by his quick decision, sound judgement and by his good leadership he contributed largely to the success of the attack. [LG 14/5/1914 pg 6056]. (P)SOLD at A$2000
