  • Lance Bombardier M. J. Compton, MM, m.i.d.; Wairoa; born Wairoa, 1 Apr 1919; carpenter. (Source: Gillespie, O.A. The Pacific. p.151.)

    'It created considerable damage before it was silenced by a resourceful American, Carpenter's Mate 1st Class Aurillo Tassone, of the CBs, who, using a bulldozer as a tank and its shining blade as a shield, crushed the garrison and buried the 24 Japanese occupants in one operation. He was awarded the Silver Star. A party of anti-aircraft gunners, landing with the second wave, attempted to liquidate this strongpoint, and Gunner M. J. Compton disposed of some of the occupants before the bulldozer arrived. Captain H. H. Grey, also a gunner, collected a party and played an infantry role by seeking enemy strongposts.' (Source: Gillespie, O.A. The Pacific. p. 151.) AWMM
