Te Hokowhitu a Tu publication will complement Te Papa Gallipoli exhibition

The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa is preparing to launch its Gallipoli: The Scale of War exhibition on 18 April.

That comes two days after we will publish the new edition of Christopher Pugsley's Te Hokowhitu a Tu: The Maori Pioneer Battalion in the First World War.

Gallipoli: The Scale of War includes a significant section about the Pioneer Battalion, and what is more Christopher has been the principal historian for Te Papa's exhibition.

To see more about the Maori component of the exhibition, including commentary from Christopher, see Episode 3 in Te Papa's Building Gallipoli videos:
