“On May 31st, at Houthem, this Officer displayed courage and excellent leadership in taking reinforcements to a platoon occupying a forward defensive locality which had suffered many casualties, including the Platoon Commander. Although wounded, he reorganised the platoon and engaged the enemy, enabling the Company Commandeer to re,establish the line formerly held. This Officer, by his personality and courage, saved what might have become a difficult situation and restored the platoon to fighting trim. Throughout, he showed a complete disregard for his personal safety.” , Awarded Military Cross London Gazette 20 December 1940
