  • Mētara me ngā Tohu
    Military Medal (MM) AWMM
    London Gazette, 11 December 1918, p14670, Rec No 2275. For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in the Field at Puisieux-au-Mont on the nights of 14th/15th August. When the Battalion was advancing against the enemy by means of a series of fighting patrols who were attacking the rearguard positions of the enemy. The party to which this man belonged had all its non-commissioned officers casualtied and the advance was temporarily hung up by the strong enemy machine gun post situated in such a position as to make impossible all communication with the troops on the right. This man assumed command of his party and led a bombing section along a completely straight section of trench which was absolutely enfiladed by the machine gun in question. His initiative and courageous action resulted, after considerable bombing, in the withdrawal of the enemy post. His handling of the men in a very critical stage of the operation was admirable, and his conduct and actions inspired the men to an extraordinary extent. Subsequently in the consolidation of the new line he rendered immense assistance until his Company was relieved some 24 hours afterwards, during which time his section of the line was subjected to intense artillery fire.
