LEAKE, Capt. George Ernest Arthur ... ... ... ... ... 4/London

BULLECOURT, 15th May, 1917. For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty when in command of his company. He showed a splendid example of coolness, disregard of danger, and cheerfulness, and, although wounded, he remained at duty. It was largely owing to his influence that all ranks showed such a splendid spirit under the most intense hostile barrage, which lasted for 14 hours. [3371
