Battle of Gate Pa

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:09 pm on 28 April 2014

It was a significant event in New Zealand history, 100 imperial British soldiers were killed or wounded in the battle, and it was recorded as one of the worst defeats for the British. Preparations for the anniversary have been two years in the planning and a commemoration dinner will take place on 28 April, just as it did 150 years ago, when a dinner was held for the British officers prior to the battle.
