From the Battalion diary, Sunday 27th February 1944: "1530 hrs Pte Ranhiue S (Sam Rangiuia) of B Coy (12 Platoon) missing believed PW since the Cassino action returned to Battalion after having been PW behind German lines for nearly a week. A wonderful story to relate. Captured at Cassino when his section surrendered to enemy tanks he and 9 others were taken to another Division opposite 10 Corp Sector and there he was detailed to carry back to the 56 Division Commander a “Truce” note to be able to care for their dead and wounded. From 10 Corp he was returned to our own Division HQ and he was then again interrogated. Very valuable information was received through him."
