  • Sergeant R. A. Milne, MM; Rangiora; born Rangiora, 23 Sep 1918; civil servant; wounded 23 Mar 1943. (Source: Murphy, W.E. 2nd NZ Divisional Artillery. p.604.)

    'All firing by 46 Battery brought in return a heavy concentration on the battery and RHQ. The gun E4 had its range cone holed, its dial sight broken, and one tyre burst. Soon after midday B3 had its recuperator punctured, and when charges caught on fire in the B1 gun pit the dial sight of B1 was damaged and both tyres were burnt. Gunners hastened to repair the damage and by 1 p.m. B1 and B3 were back in action. Then another bombardment of 46 Battery began and in it Second-Lieutenant Cook, while giving out fire orders, was killed instantly and a sergeant was wounded. Bombardier Milne was again at hand, and he carried the wounded man out of the area and saw him evacuated to the RAP. Then he went back and started to put out several fires caused by the shelling.
