Maori Battalion Entertaining Other NZ Division Fellows..
Fantastic snap of Maori Battalion singers to the fore entertaining other NZ Div. members on a troopship in transit on the very dangerous waters of the Mediterranean Sea from Egypt to Taranto where they arrived on the 9th of September 1943. With most now having various levels of war experience and of course the rookies now venturing to new an un-known challenges in Italy, this would be a tough emotional time for many.Undoubtably the natural harmonies provided here would have been a soothing sound from distant home.
