    "During the attack on the Deir El Munassib Depression on the night of 3/4 September 1942 this officer commanded the company which provided protection for the battalion until the final assault was made. This company met with resistance from strong positions at various points over a distance of 3500 yards, but overcame the enemy, thus enabling the main force to move to it's forming-up line with very little interference. Capt. Keiha prepared for his difficult task well, and executed it excellently. At all times he was there to inspire, control and direct his men under heavy machine-gun, mortar and artillery fire, and it was largely due to his leadership that the whole operation was successful.(L.G. 5/11/1942 (I)) The National Archives. Recommendation for Award for Keiha, Kingi Areta. (Ref. WO 373/22/42). Military Cross. " AWMM
