CITATION:

Distinguished Conduct Medal : This NCO was one of a small raiding party with Lieutenant Mayne, who at Sirte on the 12/13th December, destroyed 24 aeroplanes, bomb stores and petrol stores. This NCO was conspicuous throughout for his utter disregard of danger-his coolness and steadiness when faced by a superior number of the enemy. The example set by this NCO was an inspiration to all, and was instrumental in the success of this operation.
