'Distinguished himself by gallantry and devotion to duty in bringing up material for a bridge urgently required East of Vaux. Lance Corporal McLaughlin was in charge of the wagons conveying material for this purpose and led the way over a road under heavy shell-fire in full view of the enemy. The determination and judgement shown by this N.C.O. in this, as in earlier operations, have shown him to be an excellent soldier'.
