  • Capt O. P. Davis, MC; born Greymouth, 17 Mar 1920; civil servant. (Source: Murphy, W.E. 2nd New Zealand Divisional Artillery. p.727.)

    'From Venice to the Piave
    In such a situation the irrepressible Huck Sawyers of the 5th Field, who had been following the 6th, could be expected to be out in front looking for trouble. He had reconnaissance parties well forward to find out what was happening and to prepare for deployment. When he found that this was not called for, however, he pushed on into Venice and was the first Allied soldier to enter the city, beating the D Troop FOO of the 6th Field (as the diary of that unit admits). It was 1.50 p.m. on the 29th when he signalled that he was there, and Major Angell, Second-Lieutenant Thompson (the IO) and Second-Lieutenant Stewart (the regimental survey officer) soon joined him. ‘The reception was tremendous’, the 5th Field diary states, ‘as we had passed the tanks by many hours.’ The regiment spent the night at Marcello, a few miles beyond Mestre. On 1 May Sawyers left the 5th Field for well-deserved leave home and Lieutenant-Colonel Hanna replaced him.
    The various parts of the 7th Anti-Tank (other than the crews of the M10s who were biting their fingernails as they waited to get across the P0) shared these experiences. On the 30th, however, the heavy mortar battery—with its jeeps by far the most mobile of the Divisional Artillery—took the lead when A Sub-battery crossed the Piave by ferry and spent the night at San Dona di Piave. In the late afternoon 26 Battery of the 4th Field also crossed; but 25 and 46 Batteries became engaged in a sharp clash with enemy counter-attacking 9 Brigade from the south-east. For nearly two hours both batteries fired vigorously, using up 1486 rounds. During this time Bombardier Mercer, the radio operator for the 46 Battery FOO, Captain Davis, came under small-arms and mortar fire; but he continued calmly and efficiently to work his set from the back of a jeep. The fire called down by Davis undoubtedly helped to keep down casualties in 27 Battalion. It was a splendid example of observed shooting by night. Davis, for this and earlier work, gained an MC and Mercer was in due course awarded an MM.' (Source: Murphy, W.E. 2nd New Zealand Divisional Artillery. p. 727.) AWMM
