On 9 October 1917 east of Langemarck, Belgium,during an attack which was held up by machine-gun fire and causing many casualties,Sergeant Molyneux organised a bombing party to clear the trench in front of an house.

Many of the enemy were killed and a machine-gun captured. The sergeant then called for someone to follow him and rushed for the house. By the time the extra men arrived he was in the thick of a hand-to-hand fight which only lasted a short time and the enemy surrendered. In addition to the dead and wounded between 20 or 30 prisoners were taken.

 He also won the Croix de Guerre (Belgium).
