The 6th Hauraki Company  of the Auckland Battalion, Main Body New Zealand Expeditionary Force, was recruited in the No. 2 Area of the Auckland Military District, comprising the localities of Coromandel, Thames, Paeroa, Morrinsville, Rotorua, Opotiki, Whakatane, Tauranga, Katikati, and Waihi.
 
 The quota of men required was 227, exclusive of the Headquarters staff. The Company was divided into four platoons, Nos. 5, 6, 7, and 8, each containing between 50 and 60 men, led by a Lieutenant. Each platoon was made up of four sections, of about 14 men, in charge of a non-commissioned officer.
 
The order in which the Roll is made up is in which the men were associated together in camp life, and in which the Company was paraded.
 
The Roll itself is supplied by an officer of the Company present at the landing, has been carefully checked with one in the possession of another officer, and is absolutely correct. The Original copy is in the Possession of Sergeant-Major Robinson, Paeroa.
 
A number of men of the Main Body in hospital were for the time being replaced by others from the reinforcements: the former later on took their places in the firing line, but were not present at the landing.
