M.C. London Gazette 22 June 1918.

‘For conspicuous gallantry. On 21 March 1918, he showed great coolness and bravery whilst on contact patrol with Captain E. B. Bryson in the St. Quentin area.While flying at a height of only 200 feet, owing to clouds, under severe rifle and machine-gun fire, he accurately located enemy dispositions and when the machine was forced to land owing to the pilot being severely wounded, he succeeded in destroying the machine, although it was in close proximity to the enemy, and in bringing his pilot back to safety. He has also, on numerous occasions, attacked the enemy forces with bombs and machine-gun fire from very low altitudes.’
