Marching Onward
By Edward Latter

The History of the 2nd Battalion (Canterbury, Nelson, Marlborough, West Coast) Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment

This book records the history of infantry soldiering in Canterbury, South Canterbury, Nelson, Marlborough and the West Coast. It explains the apprehension of the early settlers in Nelson 150 years ago and the formation of the Nelson battalion of militia in 1845. It traces the establishment of over 80 separate volunteer corps in the last century and their contribution to community life, internal peacekeeping and active service in the Boer War and two world wars.

This book brings together, for the first time in one volume, the background to colours, battle honours, dress distinctions, customs, allied regiments and awards for long service. As such, it will be the definitive reference work for the present day battalion and a useful contribution to the history of New Zealand's Defence Force.

The inclusion of over 400 photographs, closely matched to the script, will not only bring back many memories to members of the Regimental Association and all those who have served, but will also interest the families and communities whose support and sacrifices made that service possible.
