Distinguished Conduct Medal

'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. Under heavy fire he reconnoitred the ground forward of the front line, and, with a wiring party 60 strong, completed the wire entanglement of a position which had only been occupied during that evening. The work was accomplished under heavy fire, and the party sustained severe casualties, and it was largely due to Sergeant Murphy's coolness and the fine example he set the men that it was possible to complete the work.'
