The 35th Battalion

WO II R. A. Buckland, MBE

WO II R. A. Buckland, MBE

67194, WO II Robert Alfred Buckland, 35th Battalion, held the appointment of RQMS of this battalion from the time of its going to Fiji, and served in that capacity for a period of over two years covering the campaigns in Vella Lavella and Nissan Island. During the whole length of his service he has never spared himself and has shown great diligence and devotion to duty, thus contributing very materially towards the successful organisation of his unit. He has also done yoeman service in the organisation of the sporting activities of his unit, thereby assisting in a large measure with the maintenance of morale during long and difficult periods under tropical conditions. The high esteem in which he is held by all ranks is a reflection of the excellence of his service to the battalion.
