For all his remarkable exploits on the battlefield, New Zealander Upham was a shy and modest man, embarrassed when asked about the actions he had been decorated for. “The military honours bestowed on me,” he said, “are the property of the men of my unit.”
When King George VI was conferring Upham’s second VC he asked Maj-Gen Sir Howard Kippenberger, his commanding officer: “Does he deserve it?”
“In my respectful opinion, Sir,” replied Kippenberger, “Upham won this VC several times over.”
