  • Sergeant P. J. Flynn, MM; born NZ 15 Jan 1905; miner; wounded May 1941. (Source: Kay, R. Italy Volume II : From Cassino to Trieste. p.326.)

    'Divisional Cavalry Battalion, facing Faenza across the Lamone River, heard the movement of vehicles in the town shortly after midnight on the 16th, and explosions an hour or two before dawn. Sergeant Flynn of C Squadron crossed the river on an improvised footbridge, went into the town on his own, and brought back a prisoner from whom useful information was obtained. Flynn then led a fighting patrol into the town to capture several snipers.' (Source: Kay, R. Italy Volume II : From Cassino to Trieste. p. 326.) AWMM
