  • Sapper T. G. McIntosh, MM; Auckland; born NZ 9 Jul 1918; tractor driver. (Source: Cody, J.F. NZ Engineers, Middle East. p.697.)

    'The reader will have noticed that the great proportion of decorations for gallantry under fire since the Senio crossing had been awarded to dozer operators. The Sillaro assault was to continue the trend. Sapper Fisken during the afternoon of the 15th was working on the approach from Massa Lombarda to a bridge site when he came under harassing fire, which continued throughout the afternoon and became heavier as he approached the river. Fisken never left his machine until the job was finished and later received an MM.

    Sapper McIntosh was awarded a similar decoration for similar conduct when doing the same kind of job. His machine was twice put out of acion by shell splinters and twice he repaired the damage and carried on. He never stopped until the approach track was made, and as soon as the bridge was over he crossed and dozed the far bank.' (Source: Cody, J.F. NZ Engineers, Middle East. p. 697.) AWMM
