  • Lance Corporal T. J. Schultz, MM; born NZ 21 Oct 1916; farmhand; killed in action 19 Dec 1944. (Source: Puttick, E. 25 Battalion. p.508.)

    'In this important reconnaissance of the Uso crossings Private Schultz did some fine work. Going forward as a scout, on his own initiative, he found a covered route for his platoon to the river bank and then again went forward, reconnoitred a crossing, and crossed the river. On Monte Lignano in July Schultz had displayed similar skill and daring in reconnaissance, and although suffering severely from the effects of blast he continually assisted in the evacuation of the wounded under heavy shell and mortar fire. These services earned him a well-deserved Military Medal. Lance Corporal T. J. Schultz, MM; born NZ 21 Oct 1916; farmhand; killed in action 19 Dec 1944.' (Source: Puttick, E. 25 Battalion. p. 508.)
