Maori soldiers of the Native Contingent appear in high spirits in this photo, taken in Egypt early 1915. After a few weeks in Egypt the contigent was sent to Malta for garrison duties, while the remaining N.Z. soldiers went to Gallipoli. The heavy casualties at Anzac Cove meant that any idea of the Native Contingent being kept out of the fighting was soon abandoned. The Maori soldiers landed at Gallipoli on 2 July 1915.
