For conspicuous gallantry and determination. When he found his half company too weak to carry out an assault, he went back, under heavy fire, and brought up his supporting half company, equipped with bombs and shovels. After the assault, in which he captured a trench, he beat off two counter attacks and consolidated his position under very difficult circumstances.
