More Info →Māori Battalion marching in Palmerston North

The Māori Battalion trained at the Palmerston North Showgrounds during World War Two. This is one of a set of images showing their final parade from the Showgrounds, with this one being taken in Cuba Street. It appears to be taken from the top of a building on the other side of Cuba Street, and shows the Battalion marching past the corner of Lombard Street and the Hotel Carlton (now the Distinction Hotel). Images are from the Newth family album. The album is digitised in its entirety at 2018A_NewthS1V1_024687
