Near Jeancourt, on 18th September 1918, he showed marked gallantry and decision in the handling of his company. During the operation the company, with a strength of 120, took over 100 prisoners and more than twelve machine guns. That such considerable results were attained was due to the courage and initiative displayed by him, and to his skilful direction of the splendid fighting company under his command.
