THE NEW ZEALAND GALLANTRY AWARDS

The Queen has been pleased, on the occasion of the celebration of the New Year, to approve the following New Zealand Gallantry Awards for actions in East Timor:

N.Z.G.D

To receive the New Zealand Gallantry Decoration:

NEW ZEALAND DEFENCE FORCE

Private (now Trooper) Phillip Murray CHEATER (X1003534), Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment.

CITATION

On 24 July 2000, Private Cheater was the lead scout and tracker for a patrol operating on the border between East and West Timor. The patrol was following up signs of an armed militia group when it was fired on by a militia element occupying high ground overlooking the patrol's intended route. During the initial stages of the contact, Private Cheater and Private Manning were in the direct line of fire from the militia. Private Manning was shot and Private Cheater saw him fall. Both men had become momentarily isolated from the remainder of the patrol and it was at this time that Private Cheater received splinter wounds to the side of his head and face from bullets that had struck nearby trees. Showing complete disregard for his own safety, and the injuries he had sustained, Private Cheater began moving, under heavy militia fire, to the spot where Private Manning had fallen. Despite the risk of drawing further fire, Private Cheater began calling to Private Manning to ascertain whether or not he had been killed. He then attempted to retrieve Private Manning's machine gun to prevent it falling into the hands of the militia. During this period he continued to be exposed to heavy fire.

Realising that he was isolated and that the militia were attempting to outflank his patrol, Private Cheater withdrew under fire and linked up with the remainder of the patrol. It was during this withdrawal that he suffered an ankle injury due to the extremely rough terrain. As the patrol broke contact, Private Cheater, with the assistance of another member of the patrol, fired three rounds from his grenade launcher, which finally halted the militia attack and forced them to withdraw. Private Cheater had been determined to help Private Manning if at all possible and, when he realised that he was dead, he had tried to retrieve the machine gun to prevent it falling into the hands of the militia. His action demonstrated exceptional gallantry and comradeship in the face of extreme danger and stress.

N.Z.G.M

To receive the New Zealand Gallantry Medal:

NEW ZEALAND DEFENCE FORCE

Corporal Gerald Stewart FENTON (K55577), Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment.

CITATION

On 10 August 2000, Corporal Fenton was attached to a Nepalese platoon in East Timor, as a Signaller. While carrying out a patrol on the border between East and West Timor, part of the platoon came under fire from a militia group and sustained casualties. The Nepalese platoon commander immediately responded by moving the remainder of the patrol towards the contact site. As this was taking place, they too came under fire. As the only English-speaking signaller on the scene, Corporal Fenton provided the crucial communications link to both the Battalion Headquarters and to the helicopters called in to evacuate the Nepalese casualties. That this evacuation was successfully completed, was in no small part due to the effective communications maintained by Corporal Fenton.

Despite the immediate threat to his life during this incident, Corporal Fenton remained focused on his job. He remained in close proximity to an English-speaking officer, so that he could obtain information quickly and relay it immediately to New Zealand and Australian operational staff of the Battalion. Throughout the incident, the language barrier made his personal safety precarious and also made his task much more difficult to carry out.

Corporal Fenton showed considerable courage and presence of mind throughout this incident and carried out his duties in a thoroughly professional manner.

Dated at Wellington this 31st day of December 2004.
DIANE MORCOM, Clerk of the Executive Council.

THE NEW ZEALAND BRAVERY AWARDS

The Queen has been pleased, on the occasion of the celebration of the New Year, to approve the following New Zealand Bravery Award for actions in East Timor:

N.Z.B.M

To receive the New Zealand Bravery Medal:

NEW ZEALAND DEFENCE FORCE

Sergeant Ngametua TETAVA (C748537), Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment.

CITATION

On 17 October 1999, Sergeant Tetava was acting as Safety Supervisor for a live firing range practice at the High Range Training Area in Australia, prior to deploying to East Timor. Sergeant Tetava was supervising Private Kelly, who was in a kneeling position changing the magazine on his weapon, while another soldier was throwing a grenade. Both were positioned close to the edge of a gully. The grenade landed short of its target and on the edge of the gully in such a way that Private Kelly was within the blast danger area of the grenade. Seeing that Private Kelly was unaware of the danger, Sergeant Tetava immediately moved forward, pulled Private Kelly away from the gully edge and lay over his upper body. Private Kelly sustained a flesh wound from the exploding grenade.

Sergeant Tetava's action showed great presence of mind and decisiveness. He displayed a complete disregard for his own safety and in so doing, prevented a fellow soldier from sustaining a much more serious injury.

Dated at Wellington this 31st day of December 2004.
DIANE MORCOM, Clerk of the Executive Council.
