Topic type:

A Commemoration Dinner was held on the eve of the 150th commemoration of the Battle of Gate Pā at Pukehinahina. The evening began with a karakia and an introduction by MC Chris Wikaira at Trinity Wharf. The most recent recipient of the Victoria Cross, Willie Apiata, addressed the crowd. The dinner was reminiscent of the dinner held 150 years ago as commanders of the colonial forces dined at The Elms the night before the battle. These photographs were taken by Tania Lewis-Rickard and are reproduced here with her permission.
