"For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. While on a contact patrol, he saw the enemy launch an attack in force. He dropped bombs on the enemy reserves, causing many casualties. He then attacked the advancing enemy, flying just above their heads and killing a large number of them. When his ammunition was exhausted he returned and made a valuable report. He showed magnificent courage and determination throughout the operations."
