Role of the 2nd Bn 18th Regiment in NZ

Postby rwm » 21 Aug 2013 10:20


I'm a new member and am interested in the 18th Regiment in New Zealand, actions they were involved in and their uniforms.
I know they arrived from 1863, leaving in 1870, and took part in the Waikato and Taranaki campaigns - but am hoping other knowledgeable members could give some more detail.
I have found out that they were at Camp Te Papa in Tauranga, but don't know exactly when. Also that their officers mess had been at Auckland in a house (formerly occupied by General Cameron) called St Kevins on Karangahape Road.

If anyone has more information, or photographs I would be really grateful.

Hi Wesley
I can supply you with all of that information. However, I'm out of the country this week, so will get back to it next week.
