Citations:
LG Sup 22 April 1918 pg 4828 - "For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. On two occasions when his formation was attacked by larger bodies of enemy scouts, he and his observer sent one of the enemy down in flames and two others completely out of control. During a period of three months he carried out two exceptionally long reconnaissances during which he took a large number of photographs, containing most valuable information. His personal efforts and example are of the greatest value to the other pilots in the squadron."
