      MM. London Gazette, 19 February 1917, p1757, Rec No 514: Actions of the taking of Switch Trench and successive objectives during the period from 15th September to 15th October 1916 inclusive. As Linesmen on the New Zealand Artillery Lines these men displayed the greatest gallantry throughout the whole period. The nine noteworthy instances are: Longueral to High Wood. 8pm 30th September to 6.15am 1st October. Running lines for incoming Brigade. Shellfire was continuous and the lines required unceasing repair for 48 hours. 2 October: To Fish Alley. Running lines through barrage for advance of 1st and 2nd NZFA Brigades. Lines were cut in several places before laying was completed and required constant repair. 9th October hostile barrage cut practically all forward lines necessitating prolonged work under fire. 15th October barrage cut all forward lines, line party had barely two hours before our attack but repaired and kept in repair sufficient communications, considerably influencing the success of our attack. Sergeant Moore's conduct was especially noticeable on this occasion. He supervised the whole task owing to his Officers absence at Headquarters. After exhausting all the cable on his drums he collected and made use of destroyed cable in effecting repairs. The whole task being under hostile fire. AWMM
