Order awarded to Brigadier General Herbert Ernest Hart in 1919 Citation: London Gazette, 3 June 1919, p6790, Rec No 3402 At the time of this award Brigadier General Hart was serving as Lieut. Colonel (Temp. Brigadier-General) Wellington Regiment. Commanding 3rd NZ (Rifle) Brigade “This officer has served continuously in the field from the landing in Gallipoli until the Armistice - except for a short period while wounded. In action, for the first time as a Regimental Officer, later as a Battalion Commander, and for the last eighteen months as a Brigade Commander, his leadership and gallantry have throughout won the confidence of his men. His conduct of operations entrusted to him have always won the confidence of his superiors. Behind the Line, his own high sense of duty has been an example to his officers, and his unremitting care for the comfort and welfare of his men in the ranks has ensured their affection and obedience. For some years previous to the War, and at a time when no other reward than a sense of duty performed could be looked for, this officer, among others, by hard work with the Volunteers, later with the Territorial Force, made possible the foundation off which the success of the New Zealand Expeditionary Force has largely been built.” The Most Honourable Order of the Bath : Companion (Military) : CB (miniature) Part of miniature medal set of Brigadier General Herbert Ernest Hart gilt and enamel Maltese cross, ring suspension, with ribbon obverse: white enamel limbs, lions between each limb, central medallion with enamel rings of green and red, legend in red ring: TRIA·JUNCTA·IN·UNO, blue banner below: ICH DIEN reverse: same as obverse ribbon: grosgrain, 15mm wide, maroon medal, miniature
