We spent 5 hours at the Museum; where we took part in a tour of the exhibits, and learnt about the different wars New Zealand took part in, cooked Army rations and learnt about what being a Gallipoli Medic involved. As always these activities involved lots of fun as well as learning.
Thanks for taking care of us Mark and Erena.
