'Te Rau Aroha" - Maori Battalion Y.M.C.A Truck
"Homeward bound" from the 17th of December 1945 and issued to personnel on the "Dominion Monarch". Within the 36 pages of this delightfull booklet is this heart warming story of the 28th (Maori) Battalion YMCA canteen truck. It was an icon to many and was jealously protected by the boys within Battalion ranks and similar to its members was a metal warrior who survived a number of battles, some in comedic form.
