   For the determination and skill displayed by him as a pilot. On the 10th March, 1918, he attacked three Albatross scouts. He drove two of the enemy aircraft down, and then dived on the third and fired a long burst. The enemy machine pulled up, fell over on its side, and fell straight down out of control until lost to sight. He has also destroyed or brought down out of control many other enemy machines.
