New museum in Gisborne
A new museum was opened in Gisborne on Saturday 15 November 2014 dedicated to C Company of the 28th Maori Battalion. Memorial C Company House will hold many precious heirlooms which families of the veterans have gifted to the museum.
The opening marked 100 years since 60 Maori volunteers left New Zealand to fight in World War I. The museum will also house artefacts from all wars New Zealand has fought in since the Boer War in 1899. It was created as a result of fundraising and donations from family members and corporations.
