This officer was in charge of the left forward flank of the line, where he displayed the greatest ability in reorganising the details and stragglers from other divisions, which were being absorbed as they came along, by the composite battalion with which he was serving. Under most difficult circumstances, his tireless energy and cheerful courage were an invaluable example to all ranks of his command, exhausted as they were with prolonged fighting. At a critical moment, though twice wounded, he rallied his men, and led them forward to restore the front after a personal reconnaissance under heavy shell fire, and he remained directing his command until relieved the following morning. His courage and resource under most trying conditions was admirable – Photo and write up Distinguished Service Order 17 September 1918 Hull Daily News – Mention in Despatches 10th Battalion Sir D Haigs Despatches 8 November 1918 – Son of Mayor of Hedon – Died 20 July 1960 Windyridge Hedon
