He mea whakatipu tēnei nā ōku nei mātua i tū ki te pae o te pakanga me ngā kōrero mō ērā o rātau i hinga i te kauhanga riri o Itāria.

The Māori Battalion are the main subject for my thesis of Masters in Māori studies. I was raised by my uncles who were in the Battalion along with the stories of those of them who fell on the battle fields of Italy. I will post their stories in the hope that the next generation sees them and so that it isn't lost.
