Synopsis The book is the story of the 2400 Australian volunteers recruited from a population base in 1863 of 1.5 million settlers was a contribution with unique military, societal, political and commercial outcomes both for the individual colonies and their later military development. This account is specifically confined to the period of Australians greatest contribution of men and munitions, beginning in 1860, until the disbanding of the majority Australian recruited Military Settler Regiments in October 1867. There are many memorials to Australias war dead; among them are two permanent reminders to the Australian participation in the New Zealand Wars. The entrance to the Anglesey Barracks in Hobart is dominated by a tall column memorial to the members of the 99th Regiment that sailed from Hobart to take part in the First New Zealand War (1845-1847). On their discharge after the war the Tasmania veterans of the 99 Regiment who finally settled in Hobart regularly met at the Anglesey Barracks memorial for their annual commemorative service and reunion. The second memorial is more directly significant to this study and it is frequently the cause of curious questions raised by visitors. It stands in a foremost site dominating its pleasant garden surroundings designed as a memorial triumphal arch in the centre of Sydney's Burwood public park. The stone arch has chiselled on its exterior the countries where Australians have fought for Empire to Peace Keeping. At the top of the list is the inscription ;The New Zealand Wars;. The reference no doubt is a recollection within the Burwood historical memory of those young men who in the mid nineteenth century sailed from the district and who died or returned from their service for the Empire and the New Zealand War.
