Special service a salute to our civilian soldiers ' We want to recognise the remarkable contributions civilian soldiers have made . . . this ceremony is just one small way to do this. ' Lieutenant Colonel Chris Powell A special sunset ser- vice recognises North- land soldiers who ve served and continue to serve their country. Members of A Com- pany, the Northland soldiers of the 3rd Auckland (Countess of Ranfurly s Own) and Northland Battalion Group have given their time and in some cases their lives on battlefields around the world for more than 150 years. They have served in the Boer War and World Wars One and Two to peacekeeping missions in all corners of the globe. A Company soldiers supported by com- rades from Auckland will be in Whangarei for the Northland launch of the regi- ment s centennial his- tory book, Auckland Infantry, on February 12.Commanding officer Lieutenant Colonel Chris Powell says: We want to recognise the remarkable con- tributions civilian soldiers have made and this ceremony is just one small way to do this. The book will be launched by the Min- ister of Defence and former 3rd Auckland Northland Regiment officer Dr Wayne Mapp. The ceremony starts at 6pm at the Whangarei RSA, 9 Rust Ave. The public is welcome.

Reviewed by Nat- ional Army Museum director Colonel (Rtd) Raymond J Seymour Wow, what a book! More than 500 pages of action- packed history, supported by more than 1000 thumb- nail sketches of some of the people who have made their mark in the long history of the Auckland Infantry. And there is more. About 700 photo- graphs -- some that have never been seen before -- plus a sprinkling of easy- to-read maps and even the odd topical cartoon, make this excellent publi- cation, researched by some very passionate re- searchers and writ- ten by three out- standing and emi- nent authors, such an exciting inclu- sion to New Zealand s military history treasure trove. This book is nothing short of outstanding. And it leaves very few stories remain- ing to be told. In all my years of reviewing military books, Auckland Infantry is the first book to receive a score of 10 out of 10 from me.
