A wonderful award reflecting sheer blind courage.

On the day Private Neafsey won his medal he was acting to repair telegraphic lines which had been cut in many places by a massive German bombardment. He was out in no-man's-land doing repairs single handedly "for many hours" under the withering enemy shell fire.
