Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur
"Excellent observer for heavy artillery. Conscientious and skillful. Called upon to regulate firing of long duration on distant objectives, he has acquitted himself remarkably in delicate missions, in spite of enemy planes and guns. During the course of regulating artillery, on 2 May 1917, he was attacked by six German planes, but put them to flight after downing two, returning with his plane riddled by bullets. Three German planes downed to his account. Already cited in orders." Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur citation, 11 June 1917
