    Sergeant Andrew John Riddell, M.M., who has been reported killed in action, was born at Te Awamutu in 1902 [sic], and attended the Matiere school. He left New Zealand with the Third Echelon, and won the Military Medal in the last Libyan campaign during an attack on a detachment of the enemy near Bardia. His tank received four direct hits, but he did not leave the vehicle until he had extricated the wounded driver. He then carried him 300yds. under heavy mortar and machine-gun fire, and stayed with him until rescued after dark. Sergeant Riddell has a brother overseas. One brother-in-law was killed in action and another died from wounds while a prisoner of war. Sergeant Riddell's wife lives at Aria. (New Zealand Herald, 5 August 1942, p. 5) AWMM
