Lieutenant Colonel
  • MC MC Military Cross
Royal Army Medical Corps
He entered the war in France on 26th June 1915 and served with 24th Field Ambulance RAMC. He was awarded the Military Cross 'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He worked continuously for thirty-six hours under heavy shell fire and adverse conditions of weather, not only collecting the wounded of his own brigade, but also those of another, who were lying in an advanced position. To do this he collected all the bearer parties that he could find, and personally led them to the spots under heavy shell fire. By his gallant conduct in going forward again and again, regardless of his personal safety, he undoubtedly saved many lives.' He was killed whilst tending to the wounded under intense shell fire on August 14, 1917.
