Object Detail

Photographic postcard of Frank Mace (left) and others on the beach at Oakura near the Ahuahu stream. Mace is supposedly pointing to the site where a group of soldiers from the Taranaki Military Settlers and 57th Regiment were ambushed and killed by a force of Maori Hauhaus in April 1864. Mace, with some of his Taranaki Mounted Rifles, was the first to discover the dead and wounded soldiers.
