CITATION:

British Empire Medal : Operations in Burma. February - May 1943

On 6th March, 1943, this N.C.O. took a prominent part in the destruction of a railway bridge on the MYITKYINA railway south of Nankan. Throughout the campaign he specialised in the laying of booby traps of all types, which in many instances are known to have inflicted casualties on the enemy and greatly hampered his pursuit. Having had wide experience in the Western Desert and in Libya, he was adept at laying anti-tank mines, which are known to have accounted for one lorry and one Armoured vehicle, and probably several more. His expert knowledge of explosives and of engineer training in general was of utmost use.
