Caption

The Tauranga 43rd Regiment New Zealand Wars memorial erected in 1865 commemorates the 26 men of the 43rd Regiment who were killed in action or died of wounds received at Gate Pā and Te Ranga in 1864. Their names are inscribed on marble plaques upon the obelisk. Unlike other memorials this one was erected within a year of the battles. To the right in the background can be seen the grave of Captain John Hamilton. Photo: Debbie McCauley (July, 2011).
