Mon histoire

Military Medal citation:
(Awarded for leadership at Vimy Ridge - April 9, 1917).
For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in action. During the advance, the N.C.O.'s of his section had become casualties. As senior soldier he rallied the men and by his own fearless example led the men to their objective. Throughout the action this man showed a total disregard for danger and was a brilliant example to the men.
