Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur
"An energetic officer, audacious and skillful pilot. In less than a month, by his courage and combat techniques, and by the example he gives each day to everyone, he made a newly formed young escadrille into a highly efficient unit. On 3 May 1917, he downed his third enemy plane in our lines. Cited twice in orders." Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur citation, 22 May 1917
