Within the pages of this commemorative book is the story of Solomon Isaacs, who left behind his life in New Zealand and his family in the Cook Islands to serve in the First World War in the 3rd Māori Reinforcements. Born in 1895 and raised in the village of Tautu on Aitutaki in the Cook Islands, Solomon signed up with the NZEF as a 19-year-old labourer living in Auckland. He served just shy of three years and returned to Auckland and eventually Tautu between 1920 and 1922.
As well as imagery of and insights into New Zealand’s war effort in 1916, this special collectable book contains 12 unique miniature sheets (not available individually).
