His serving officer wrote:
“He was one of the best soldiers I have ever seen, smart, brave, devoted to his duty and a favourite amongst his comrades, both officers and men.
In his last fight his conduct was marked by the cool fearlessness for which he was well known and his example fired his comrades. Our one consolation is that he went to his God without suffering any pain from his wounds. He was killed outright”.
