    "At Petras Pass on 16 April 1941 Sgt. Katene was in command of a 3"" mortar detachment. He showed great skill in directing the fire of his mortar, destroying enemy armoured fighting vehicles and machine-guns and inflicting heavy losses. Driven out by heavy artillery fire he immediately came into action again in an alternative position and carried on. His conduct was of the highest order. (L.G. 4/11/1941). The National Archives. Recommendation for Award for Katene, George. (Ref. WO 373/27/355). Military Medal. 04 Nov 1941" AWMM

  • George Katene was the son of Mr. and Mrs. George Katene, of Porirua, Wellington, New Zealand.

    Brother of Wikitoria Katene (72092) nurse WW2

    Lieutenant G. Katene, MM; born Porirua, 27 Sep 1915; labourer; wounded 27 May 1941; killed in action 7 Dec 1943. (Source: Cody, J.F. 28 Maori Battalion. p.57.)

    'The morning of 16 April dawned grey with rain threatening. Lieutenant Urlich, looking down on the Katerini plains, wrote: ‘Could see road from katerine black with enemy vehicles. They advanced right under us and then our 5 Fd [Regiment] 25 pounders opened fire and picked vehicle-tank after vehicle-tank until Jerry found it too hot. Staff car came up part of the way and lasted one minute and a half before it was blown to Hell.’

    The machine-gun section and the battalion 3-inch mortars joined the gunners, but the spotter plane still overhead directed fire on to them in retaliation and Sergeant Katene's mortar section was forced to move to alternative positions until ordered to withdraw in accordance with his instructions.

    The enemy attempted to force the pass road with tanks supported by mortars, but 5 Field Regiment and 22 Battalion were equal to the occasion although, through a request from 22 Battalion, 15 Platoon (Lieutenant Tuhiwai) was sent down into support on the pass side of Petras Hill as a precautionary measure. It was not needed and returned to C Company.
