  • Notes 
    • Honours and Awards: *Military Cross* Date of Award: February 18, 1918 Action: Passchendaele, November 06, 1917 Citation: "For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. Through his personal courage and disregard of machine gun fire he captured a hostile machine gun and immediately brought it into action. On his company commander being evacuated, he was the only officer left with the troops, and his cheerfulness at all times materially assisted in keeping up his men's spirits during the heavy bombardment which followed on the consolidation of his position. "Date of Citation: July 18, 1918 Citation Source: London Gazette, February 18 1918 (LG 30530) and Canada Gazette August 17, 1918, P660 [4]
