  • "A brave and quick-thinking soldier: 2nd Lieutenant Frederick Harold Mintrom

    A courageous and determined soldier, 2nd Lieutenant Frederick Harold Mintrom was awarded a Military Cross for his duty on active service.

    A number of New Zealand soldiers who fought at Passchendaele were later honoured with medals for their gallantry and quick thinking, such as Mintrom, who is remembered by the courage and initiative he showed at Passchendaele:

    "East of Le Quesnoy on November 4th, 1918, 2nd-Lieut. Frederick H. Mintrom, M.M., N.Z.M.G. Corps, commanded a section of machine-guns attached to an assaulting battalion of infantry and led forward two guns with the leading waves of the right leading company in the attack. By engaging strong enemy opposition he assisted the advance of the infantry, and he took up a well-chosen position on the objective gained". Coombe, Sophie. Remembering New Zealand’s ‘Darkest Day’ .
