Four carved wooden statues, each uniquely identifying A, B, C & D companies of the Battalion, lie in the foreground on either side of the alcove.
This little cottage was just east of Summerhill and has since disappeared under a subdivision.

A resource created by Palmerston North Branch NZ Society of Genealogists ++**What is the Palmerston North Settlers Collection?**++ It consists of files of documents, photographs and stories contributed by families about their relatives who lived in or near Palmerston North. It was accumulated over a 30 year period, and collated by Noeline Penny for the Palmerston North Branch of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists. The collection also aims to list all published information about these families, including booklets, newspaper articles etc. ++**What is the scope of this collection?**++ Initially it was intended to include families living in Palmerston North and its immediate farming environs, in the period 1875-1900. However, contributions have been received for some families further afield in the Manawatū, and some for more recent times.
