Lt. Raymond Earl Rouse, M.M., 18th Bn., Can. Infy., Western Ontario R.

After the company commander had become a casualty and the attack was held up he took command of the company in a very difficult situation, and within a short distance of the enemy lines he reorganized the men with admirable skill, and later on went out under heavy fire to bring in some wounded, thus saving may lives. His gallantry and devotion to duty were conspicuous examples.
