Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
    • Son of Mr. D. Murphy, late of Galloway St., Hamilton East. AWMM
    • Private D. Murphy, Wellington Regiment, for conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty when one of a garrison of a forward post. On three occasions he passed through very heavy shell-fire to bring up stretcherbearers. On the last one. though buried by an explosion he completed his errand, failing to obtain bearers, returned to the shelled area and carried out a badly wounded comrade on his back. During the same period half the post being destroyed by shellfire, and all the rations with it, he volunteered to go back and bring up food. This he successfully did. Finally, when the post was relieved after a terrible ordeal, in which half the garrison was killed, he remained behind to look after the wounded until stretcher bearers could be sent. His magnificent devotion and exceptional fearlessness cannot be too highly praised Public - Lorraine M - Researcher - 22 September 2015 - New Zealand Herald, Volume LV, Issue 16850, 15 May 1918, Page 9
