Citation reads

North East of Arras, April 9, 1917.  For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty.  On the morning of April 9th, 1917, during the attack on Vimy Ridge, this NCO who is Orderly Room Sgt, volunteered to proceed and locate advanced Battn Hdqrs.  After locating same, he returned to guide the Commanding Officer to the position.  Upon the Commanding Officer becoming a casualty he again came back for Stretcher Bearers and assisted in carrying the Commanding Officer to safety.  In the performance of this duty this NCO was continuously under heavy shell and machine gun fire, and displayed utter disregard for personal safety.  His devotion to duty since his unit arrived in France has been of an exemplary nature, and he has at all times been willing to volunteer for an particularly dangerous work.
