'On 1st June 1940 at Bercous, France, during heavy shelling this NCO displayed complete disregard for his own safety and rendered aid to the wounded. Later in the day during a counter attack on the enemy he showed dash and determination. After rallying a few men he worked his way forward under severe enemy machine gun fire and inflected loss on the enemy. Later during the withdrawal of his company he covered his platoon with fire and did not withdraw himself until all his men were safe. His conduct was of the high order throughout'
