For marked gallantry and initiative. On 1st October, 1918, during fighting in suburbs of Cambrai, our infantry were suffering severe casualties from enemy machine guns situated behind a railway embankment.  He took forward one gun of his battery to within 500 yards of our posts, in order to enfilade this embankment.  Under heavy fire he got the gun into action and succeeded in silencing the machine guns, enabling our line to be slightly advanced.

Very fine to extremely fine. Cased.
