Visit of the Imperial Troops to Palmerston North

Visit of the Imperial Troops to Palmerston North

The Indian troops of the British Imperial Army toured New Zealand and visited Palmerston North for a short time. The train stopped in the centre of The Square, the troops disembarked, performed some displays and them re-embarked on the train. For an account of their reception, see Manawatu Times, 25 February 1901, Page 2 (available online at paperspast.natlib.govt.nz).
