VALOUR: Personal courage esp. as shown in fighting.
“Lest We Forget”
This is my tribute to the nearly 500 Cook Island Soldiers recruited by New Zealand over the course of World War One. Of the 5 contingents recruited, 3 contingents saw active service. The 4th contingent trained at Narrow Neck Camp, Auckland however shortly before their departure in 1918, the war ended. The 5th contingent had been recruited but did not start training.
