Celebrating 40 Years
Citizens Advice Bureau Papakura
  

 

                                                                      

Exhibition Starts on 19 June 2014

The Papakura CAB was established in 1974 when the Papakura Borough Council recognised the need for a local social services organisation. The CAB has moved premises and grown over the years but remains reliant on unpaid volunteers  who deal with  thousands of  requests for information and help, from people in our community each year.

This exhibition pays tribute to those volunteers and the role of the CAB- Papakura  in  supporting our diverse community.

  HARNESSED-NEW ZEALAND'S WAR HORSES
 

  Exhibition by the National Army Museum, NZ.

 

 Showing at Papakura Museum from August-October 2014

 

 Through out history the horse has accompanied soldiers in battle.

  In WWI the main body of the New Zealand Expeditionary Force left for Egypt on16    
  October 1914- " a total of 8,454  men and 3,815 horses" (Tolerton, 2013,p 32)
  By the war's end more than 10 000 NZ horses had been sent to the
  battlefields of the Middle and the Western Front. Sadly, only five would return home.

  HARNESSED tells the story of New Zealand's war horses and the men that cared
  for them during WWI (1914-1918) and the South African War (1899-1902).
