    'On the night of 19-20 April 1943 Private Challis was in a forward Company in the attack on TAKROUNA, Tunisia. After heavy fighting his unit arrived on the road immediately being the start line with only fourteen men. When the Company was ordered to take an almost sheer feature he quickly assumed command of the remaining group and with gallantry and enthusiasm pushed up the difficult and rocky slope under heavy machine-gun fire and a hail of grenades. Achieving a measure of success, he quickly placed his men and with great daring made his way across ground held by determined German troops eventua11y making contact with the Company on the flank and routing the enemy in that sector. On the following day Private Challis from a very exposed position observed and directed the fire of his men so that the enemy’s attempts to form up for a counter-attack were frustrated. His enthusiasm and complete disregard of personal safety throughout were an example and an inspiration to his men.'. (Source: The National Archives.

  • Corporal L. P. Challis, MM; Invercargill; born Invercargill, 14 Jul 1918; clerk; wounded May 1944. (Source: Ross, A. 23 Battalion. p.262.)

    'On the right, Sergeant Noel McLean led his men with conspicuous courage and dealt effectively with some of the opposition. After some delays and casualties, McLean with 17 Platoon joined 18 Platoon under Sergeant Frank Muir, who organised a series of short bayonet charges. As all officers had been killed or wounded, Muir took command of the company and completed the capture of the nearer slopes, a task in which he was assisted by the fire of Smellie and his men who had ascended the hill farther east with B Company. Corporal Challis of B also brought fire to bear on enemy positions at a critical juncture. Muir, McLean and Smellie now consolidated with their respective platoons in positions on the southern slopes below the crest, which was rendered untenable by sporadic enemy shelling. The enemy artillery responsible apparently did not know that their own troops still occupied the northern slopes, but their presence was shown by the odd grenade which continued to come over the crest till after daybreak.'
