Hi Corrina Your best bet would be to order his personnel file - you can do this through Defence - see this webpage for information on how to do this

I do not have any information to add to this site, but I was wondering if you could help me track down my Grandfather who fought in the Maori War Battalion, & where possibly I would find his name on here associated with the war? His name was Arthur Hubbard from Rotorua. I hope you can help. Thanks.
