  • Medals and Awards
    • Military Medal and bar (MM*) AWMM
    • 1914-1915 Star
      British War Medal
      Victory Medal
      Military Medal (MM) awarded Oct 1916; & (MM) Bar awarded Jan 1917:
      Although Pte. H. Rawhiti, who has just been awarded a bar to the Military Medal which he won some time ago, belongs nominally to the Pioneer Battalion, it was in Field Ambulance that he distinguished himself on both occasions. During the great attack in Galiipoli, in August, 1915, Rawhiti carried down at least a dozen wounded men from the New Zealand machine guns to the dressing station before he was disabled by ricking his back. He is still acting as a stretcher-bearer, and his new decoration is for a similar exhibition of coolness in France.
