'For gallant conduct and devotion to duty on the night of 10th/11th August, 1918, near LA FLAQUE. During the approach march the column was heavily bombed by enemy aircraft, and Private NEAL, who was a stretcher bearer, with the utmost coolness and disregard to personal welfare, ventured onto the heavily bombed road and greatly assisted in the supervision and evacuation of the casualties. His example and courage were of the greatest value in maintaining control and enabling the march to be continued. He displayed utter disregard to danger and directed the care of the wounded with despatch and initiative.'
