      "Rev. Huata became padre of 28 (Maori) Battalion in September 1943 and since then he has done continuously outstanding work in the course of the battalion's war effort.During action at Orsogna on 23/24 December 1943, his first experience under shellfire, he helped to recover the bodies of soldiers from among minefields and carried wounded with the stretcher-bearers. Thereafter he made daily visits to the forward defended localities, holding prayers with and for troops, often under shellfire and enemy machine-gun fire. Ever since that battle and in every battle in which the battalion has since been engaged, the padre has continuously religiously done such deeds to a point of routine. After every battle he is always to be seen recovering bodies of soldiers and attending to their proper burials. His happy disposition both in and out of the line and his spiritual leadership are so inspiring, and high morals founded on spiritual worship contributes very largely to the fighting spirit and efficiency of the battalion.

    'Padre Wi Huata arrived in the Middle East in 1943 and served throughout the Italian campaign. He was a young man with many talents. Life, vitality, and enthusiasm flowed from him at all times, whether he was living in the front line or taking a choir on tour round the Base hospitals. Energetic in all things affecting the welfare of his men, he showed great courage and proved himself a worthy representative of a great battalion. He was awarded the Military Cross for his fine work with the battalion in Italy. His religious duties were performed with sincerity and love, and he presented over a hundred men for confirmation.'
