    Mentioned in Despatches (MiD) AWMM
    "Lcpl Ferguson served in Korea with the Australian Army and joined 2 NZ Regt on its formation. Since taking command of a section in May 60, the standard of discipline and the morale of the section has shown a marked improvement. Under jungle conditions he has shown determination and enthusiasm and earned the respect of his men. Because of his standing in the section no matter how difficult or trying the conditionas the section has been cheerful and efficient. Lcpl Ferguson has worked very hard and has not spared himself in his efforts to carry out the tasks set him. At all times he has exerted an influence for good and undertaken responsibility far beyond the normal call of duty." Recommendation for Award for Ferguson, Lyall James, WO 373/135/424 AWMM
