NZ History Online - The Gallipoli campaign Each year on Anzac Day, New Zealanders (and Australians) mark the anniversary of the Gallipoli landings of 25 April 1915. On that day, thousands of young men, far from their homes, stormed the beaches on the Gallipoli Peninsula in what is now Turkey. For eight long months, New Zealand troops, alongside those from Australia, Great Britain and Ireland, France, India, and Newfoundland battled harsh conditions and Ottoman forces desperately fighting to protect their homeland. By the time the campaign ended, more than 130,000 men had died: at least 87,000 Ottoman soldiers and 44,000 Allied soldiers, including more than 8700 Australians.

TARANAKI REDOUBTS, 1879–81 Mr. James Robson, of Wellington (late of “Whitiora,” Stratford), who is a pioneer of sawmilling in the Upper Hutt Valley and in Taranaki, thus describes the later critical period on the Taranaki frontier and the building of the redoubt at Normanby settlement:— “I started the first sawmill at Ketemarae soon after the close of Titokowaru's war. We built the mill about a mile and a half from the present site of Normanby Township, or Matariki, as it was known by the natives; the large Maori kainga of Ketemarae was about a mile from the page 516 present township. We supplied the timber for many places about Ketemarae and on the Waimate Plains, and amongst them was the Manaia Redoubt. At one time we had seventy bullocks in the teams carting sawn timber around the district.
