Citation

 For most conspicuous bravery and leading when in attack his company was held up by heavy fire from three enemy machine guns, which were seriously delaying the advance. Realising the gravity of the situation, this N.C.O. dashed forward alone, killing several of the garrison and capturing the remainder. Later on Cpl. Good, while alone, encountered a battery of 5.9-inch guns, which were in action at the time. Collecting three men of his section, he charged the battery under pointblank fire and captured the entire crews of three guns.
