Citizenship and Remembrance:a history of the 24th NZ infantry Battalion

Author(s): Gabrielle Fortune

NZ Military

Examines how the surviving members of the Battalion honoured the memory of their comrades killed during World War II. By service to their community in the sixty years since the war ended battalion members have sought to protect that for which their comrades fought and died. This history helps to explain the enduring nature of loyalty and comradeship, as well as the practicalities of maintaining and nurturing such an association. It explores how returned servicemen generated and maintained a support network after they returned to civilian life; how they utilised their skills and abilities to serve their communities.
