  1. I an not on facebook but would still like to meet you when you pass through Otahuhu. At The Monument would be ideal. Good chance for a talk about the NZ Mounted Rifle Brigade; the most successful military unit New Zealand has ever had. They were winners which is why they were chosen as standard bearers for their generation. Everybody likes hearing about winners don’t they? I have written an article if you would like to hear more.

    1. Interesting to hear more about the monument that means so many things to many people. We’ll let you know when we’re in Otahuhu next.
