For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. With great gallantry, and at considerable personal risk, he twice extinguished fires which had been caused in his ammunition dumps by enemy shell fire, saving guns and material from damage, and showing a fine example under very trying circumstances. He afterwards established a forward observation post 800 yards in front of our new line, from which he transmitted useful information at great personal risk.
