CITATION: For most conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty at Lone Pine Trenches, in the Gallipoli Peninsula.  On 7th August, 1915, he was in a trench which was being heavily bombed by the enemy.  He picked up two live bombs and threw them back at the enemy at great risk to his own life, and continued throwing bombs, although himself wounded, thereby saving a portion of the trench which it was most important to hold.
