Military order book (2 o 4)

Military order book

An order book for the 4th Waikato militia is one of a few objects that have survived from Hamilton’s early days. Like Alexandra (now Pirongia), Cambridge and Kihikihi, Hamilton was occupied by militiamen and their families. The men were expected to defend the towns in the event of renewed warfare.
