The hotel accommodation was excellent with lovely rooms and views of the city.
The rental van is also the right size because of the amount of baggage they all carry.
Dinner was with Waiouru Camp Commander Roger MacIwaithe. A lovely formal meal with very good New Zealand wines.
Up early meet by Staff Sergeant Don who accompanied the group to breakfast. Great breakfast, packed and on time down to the Army Museum.
Surprise surprise meet by Chris Pugsley and his wife. He was in New Zealand holidaying and doing some filming for Maori TV. Professor Chris Pugsley is a friend of our Museum, he's a historian at Sandhurst and has written many books about New zealands involvement in WWI.
