DCM earned with 4 Bn. CEF att'd Malamute Coy. in North Russia in WW1. LG 27 May 1919 - "For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty at Nacoviste on Feb. 19th, 1919, while in command of a Lewis gun. He advanced over most difficult country through deep snow under enemy fire. Owing mainly to his judgment and skill the village was cleared of snipers. Later he seized a sleigh and drove his crew over 800 yards of open ice against a strong enemy position. By his courage and quickness in handling his gun the enemy resistance was overcome without loss."
Husband of Sadie MacNaughton, of Johannesburg, Transvaal, South Africa.
