General Freyberg to the Minister of Defence
I much regret to advise that Colonel Tui Love,2 commanding 28th (Maori) Battalion, has died of wounds received four days ago. Colonel Love was commanding his battalion with great courage and distinction and his loss to the Division is very great.
2 Lieutenant-Colonel E. Te W. Love; CO 28th NZ (Maori) Battalion, 13 May – 12 Jul 1942; died of wounds, 12 Jul 1942.
