  • Lieutenant H. J. Monaghan, MM; Eketahuna; born Eketahuna, 24 Jul 1918; labourer; three times wounded. (Source: Henderson, J. 22 Battalion. p.247.)

    'Lance-Corporal Monaghan, 14 Platoon, received the MM for commanding his section with outstanding courage and complete disregard for his own personal safety throughout the offensive. Although he had received four shell-splinter wounds in his back on the morning of 27 October, he remained with his section until ordered to the RAP. After having his wounds dressed he returned to his section, although suffering great pain and unable to carry a pack.' (Source: Henderson, J. 22 Battalion. p. 247.; Puttick, E. 25 Battalion. p. 238.)
