"He was a soldier in the truest sense of the word. His devotion to his regiment, his esprit de corps was wonderful. He longed to see his battalion do something more than peace soldiering and he saw it. There was no better disciplinarian, no one more determined to uphold the traditions of the old regiment. He knew his work thoroughly, and his courage and fearlessness on every occasion won for him the utmost confidence of his men " (Green Howards Gazette).
