Production role
Credit line
This medal was issued to John Mynott. Mynott was a bugler with the regiment, so it is thought that the " DR " on the inscription may refer to him being a drummer, rather than a doctor, as he was a prominent figure in the New Plymouth retailing and dairying scene, but was not a doctor.
