The original recommendation states:
"During the operations near Hargicourt from 18/21st September 1918 Sergeant Riley displayed exceptional courage and devotion to duty. He was in charge of two Machine Guns and when the Infantry was held up on three separate occasions by hostile Machine Gun fire, he personally reconnoitred the ground, established his guns in positions and silenced the enemy guns, thus allowing the advance to continue. He made these reconnaissance’s in full view of the enemy and with a total disregard for personal safety. Later when his Battalion was being relieved, he was in charge of a Limber when a shell burst wounding the drivers and killing one horse. Although under heavy shell fire Sergeant Riley brought the wounded men to cover and freed the remaining horse from the Limber.
His courage and initiative were a fine example to those around him.”
