  • Maj P. Gilchrist, MC, m.i.d.; born Te Aroha, 1 Aug 1904; barrister and solicitor; died 8 May 1960. (Source: Murphy, W.E. 2nd New Zealand Divisional Artillery. p.372.)

    'Visibility on 22 April was poor, heavy clouds appeared, and by mid-morning it was raining. Little observed fire was possible, but several divisional and corps tasks were fired. Takrouna, now firmly in New Zealand hands, was heavily shelled and the log of 47 Battery states this: ‘O.Ps. shelled off Takrouna’. The OP of D Troop, 28 Battery, signalled at 12.45 p.m. that the situation, presumably on Takrouna, was ‘Pretty sticky’. Next morning the CRA called for a 200-gun stonk on hostile guns and transport, and on the 24th under corps arrangements and with the corps commander observing from Takrouna, 14 regiments fired at a ridge ahead, Djebel Froukr, which directly overlooked the 6 Brigade area. This was a highly spectacular shoot, but its effect was doubtful; for the ridge was knife-edged and the all-important summit was hard to hit.
    Four decorations were earned in this operation. Lance-Bombardier C. C. Daniell and Gunner K. Browne won the MM for extinguishing a fire on their portée while under fire. Although blown off the portée when it was hit again, they returned to put out the flames. Gunner C. Reeves of the 5th Field earned his MM for helping a wounded man back to an ADS from an OP under heavy fire. A similar action earned Captain P. Gilchrist of the 6th Field an MC. In an OP north-east of Takrouna his radio operator was gravely wounded. Under heavy shellfire, Gilchrist sought help from a tank some 50 yards away and arranged for it to evacuate the wounded man. He then returned to the OP, manned the wireless himself, and continued to observe for his guns.' (Source: Murphy, W.E. 2nd New Zealand Divisional Artillery. p. 505.) AWMM
