  • Lt W. H. Harvey, MC; Christchurch; born Christchurch, 10 Dec 1908; carpenter. (Source: Cody, J.F. New Zealand Engineers, Middle East. p.682.)

    'Lieutenant Harvey (No. 3 Platoon, 8 Field Company) continued a record of river crossing that had begun at Cassino by so encouraging his men to ignore spasmodic interference that their drum and fascine project was ready with both sides dozed at 1 a.m. He then organised a party to tape and minelift two routes across country for about 400 yards to a good metalled road. He also shared the next honours list with an MC.' (Source: Cody, J.F. New Zealand Engineers, Middle East. p. 698.) AWMM
