FEATURED PHOTO

The Wanganui Amazon Carbineers were originally called the Girls and Ladies Khaki Corps. Organised throughout New Zealand during 1900 to support and raise money for New Zealand's involvement in the South African War, members of the Corps were mostly young women from well-to-do families who dressed in military style uniforms which they had to provide themselves for a cost of 17s 6d. This image was taken on Drews Avenue, outside the site of the old Wanganui Public Museum, now the Savage Club.
