Imperial Soldiers Who Fought in the New Zealand Land Wars of the 1860's

The following is taken from the website:

"The database lists imperial soldiers serving in New Zealand, c.1860-1869, during the New Zealand Land Wars. Information is drawn, in the first instance, from the New Zealand Medal Lists (War Office, WO 100/18, The National Archives, London).

"From 1869 the New Zealand Medal, a campaign medal, was awarded to imperial troops and some colonial troops serving in the New Zealand Wars in the 1860s. Whereas all imperial troops serving in New Zealand received the medal automatically (if they had not since died or deserted), colonial troops were eligible only if they had come under fire in the field of battle"

Scroll down the landing page for the link to the database.
