The New Zealanders at Gallipoli
Corporal Cyril Royston Guyton Bassett, N.Z. Divisional Signal Company:
Corporal C. R. G. Bassett, V.C.
(Now Lieutenant Bassett, V.C., D.S.O.)
After the New Zealand Infantry Brigade had attacked and established itself on the ridge, Corporal Bassett, in full daylight and under a continuous and heavy fire succeeded in lying a telephone-line from the old position to the new one on Chunuk Bair. He had subsequently been brought to notice for further excellent and most gallant work connected with the repair of telephone-lines by day and night under heavy fire.”
