      Citation for Military Cross (MC): "For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty whilst with his battery under heavy shell fire, in the course of which a gun pit was struck, the gun destroyed, and the ammunition set on fire. With the aid of a Serjeant he entered the pit and made gallant efforts to extinguish the fire, showing great promptitude and coolness in dealing with a serious situation."

    • "Among New Zealanders in the Imperial Army who have recently gained the Military Cross is Second-Lieutenant Oscar E. T. Gallie (2/90), son of Mr. John Gallie, of Wellington. The soldier, who is a native of Dunedin, is 26 years of age, and saw service in Samoa for eight months from August, 1914, being the first to join from the Wairarapa. He then went to England and obtained a commission in the Royal Field Artillery. About two months ago the Military Cross was awarded to his younger brother, Lieutenant Victor J. Gallie (2/5), who is in a different division of the Royal Field Artillery. Both young officers are nephews of Major A. R. Hislop, of Wellington." (from an article entitled 'Brothers Win Military Cross', Auckland Weekly News, 11 October 1917, p. 47)

      Gazetted as acting Captain on 7 January 1918 (London Gazette (online), issue 30461, published on 4 January 1918, p. 413). AWMM

      MEMORIAL TO TWO SONS.
      FATHER'S BURSARY FUND.
      GIFT TO WELLINGTON COLLEGE.
      In memory of his two sons, who made the supreme sacrifice in the war —Captain Oscar E. Gallie, D.S.0., M.C., R.F.A., and Captain Victor J. Gallie, M.C., C.deG., R.F.A., Mr. John Gallie, of Kelburn, has paid to the Public Trustee £1000 for the establishment of a bursary at Wellington College. In notifying the board of governors, Mr. Gallie said his desire was that it might stimulate the recipient of the award to emulate his sons, who were both old boys of the college, in character, patriotism and devotion to duty.
