    • Companion of the Distinguished Service Order (DSO) AWMM
      DSO: NZ Gazette, 21 September 1944, citation: "Lieutenant Colonel Fountaine commanded one of the two battalions which took part in the night attack on an enemy position west of the Roman Wall on 21/22 March 1943. The position was well organised and protected by a minefield, anti tank ditches and wire obstacles. Only a limited amount of artillery covering fire was available to support the attack, but despite this his battalion penetrated the position to a depth of over 2,000 yards, capturing its objective in the face of considerable opposition and taking several hundred prisoners. As a result of this attack a bridgehead was gained over the minefield and our tanks were able to exploit the success gained. Lieutenant Colonel Fountaine showed great skill and powers of leadership during this operation and inspired his officers and men by his own coolness, courage and determination." AWMM
