displayed most wonderful courage and fearlessness. Each

and it was in a great measure due to his efforts

On two occasions he went out to look for wounded

and brought them back in safety to our lines.

His magnificent example of gallantry and devotion to duty

throughout a very trying period inspired all ranks in his

battalion.
