This long-term exhibition is a moving tribute to the men of C Company who gave and risked their lives for the World War II Allied war effort.
The Tairawhiti Museum, in partnership with the C Company Trust Nga Taonga a Nga Tama Toa Trust, are celebrating the men and memories of the C Company, Maori (28) Battalion. The Maori Battalion was organised on a tribal basis. The C Company was made up of men from an area between Torere in the Eastern Bay of Plenty to Paritu, 40kms south of Gisborne. Nearly 1,000 men served with the C Company, including Te Moananui-a-Kiwa Ngarimu who was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross for bravery.
A main component of this display is a wall of photographs of the C Company soldiers. Most of the named soldiers have accompanying photographs and it is hoped one day this wall of photos will be complete.
A book compiled by Monty Soutar covering the history of C Company is now available. Nga Tama Toa is available at the Museum's website.
Open public holidays 1"30pm to 4pm.
