Hei tama, tu tama

Māori Battalion soldiers warm up with a game of Hei tama, tū tama. 

The game encouraged mental dexterity.  Participants would cajole and pull faces to put their opponent off the game.

Location and identity of the soldiers is not known.  If anyone can identify them please leave a comment or email [email protected]
