Nga Puhi off to war, Waitangi , Bay of Islands
I believe this was taken in Russell, the Bay of Islands. If I am wrong, please let me know.
Site editors note: This photo shows men of the Maori Battalion marching near Waitangi. After only one week's military training twenty officers and 480 men of the Maori Battalion were at Waitangi for the Centennial celebrations, and received a great welcome.
The photo was taken on February 14th, 1940 and appeared in the Auckland Weekly News.
