Sound Archives - The Return of the Maori Battalion

From Afternoons, 1:38 pm on 24 January 2018

Yesterday, January 23rd,  was the anniversary of the return of the Māori Battalion to New Zealand in 1946, after five years fighting overseas during World War II. 

To coincide with the date, Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision has launched a new online exhibition of radio broadcasts from three of the pōwhiri which welcomed home the men of this famous fighting unit.
