Smile Monty and the New Zealanders

Just read this anecdote in a 4GR Officers Association Journal (1983) which I thought might amuse : "When Montgomery took command of the Eighth Army he remarked to New Zealand's General "Tiny" Freberg that the New Zealand troops did not seem to salute much. "If you wave to them" Freberg replied diffidently "they'll wave back"

I would love to think its a true story and not just apocryphal
