The Power of the Search Engine. The Auckland War Memorial Museum has an online resource capable of tracking down the records of most soldiers that fought in the Great War.
Above:- This photograph taken in the Middle East of Trooper Joseph Topp and his horse "Bint" is an important momento of the NZMR. Joe wears an NZ Army leather jerkin, an item of clothing still issued by the army today. A collar badge of the CYC (Canterbury Yeomanry Cavalry) sits at the top of the museums forms. A record file of any man is easily obtained by entering the trooper's name HERE.



Those who have fallen have their names etched forever on the walls of the Museum's top floor.


Most Museum displays on the Mounted Rifles are small compared to the size of the Museums themselves. Auckland Museum has only two rooms available, although a bigger section is dedicated to the Gallipoli Campaign - Top: A New Zealand Boer War Saddle on display showing cavalry sword and rifle placed in saddle rifle bucket. Top right: A static display of the NRMR in the Desert Campaigns of 1916 - 1918

NZMR Website added to the Auckland War Memorial Museum's search pages
The Association's website has been added as a World War One reference portal on the Auckland War Memorial Museum's research pages. This enables both students and visitors to access our site through their restricted use internet cafe in the Museum's Armoury section.
We would like to acknowledge the help of Christina Tuitubou, the Manager for Information Centres at the museum for her help in promoting our site.
