    Corporal C. W. Salmon

    In the Birthday honours we glean the pleasing news that Corporal C. W. Salmon, of the Public Works Department has gained the Distinguished Conduct Medal. Both he and his relatives have the congratulations of the whole Service.
    Corporal Salmon, of the New Zealand Engineers (British Section), who was reported in the thirteenth casualty list as wounded, is the younger son of Mr. T. B. Salmon, postmaster, of Hawera.
    In common with others of the British section, his next of kin was shown as "not known" to the defence authorities in New Zealand.

    Corporal Salmon is an assistant engineer in the Public Works Department, and is well known in the Tauranga and Gisborne districts, where he had charge of railway formation works. He was travelling in Canada at the outbreak of the war, and, deeming it his duty to join his own country's forces, went to England and joined the New Zealanders at Salisbury Plain. This British section joined the main body in Egypt, where they were incorporated with the various units of the New Zealand division. Mr. Salmon has his other son also at the front with the Howitzer Battery. (Public Service Journal, 20 July 1915 p34)

    Did not embark in WWII served within New Zealand. AWMM
