Tono kōrero mai

Cadet A. Taylor continues to recounts his experiences on his trip to the Greek front.

Trouble was looming over the border, and the New Zealand troops' job was vitally necessary. Cadet Taylor, who had been selected for training for a commission, had to walk out on the men he had been working and living with for 19 months. It was heard on the radio two or three days later that the New Zealand troops were in action.

On the journey back through Greece, the train was full and nobody would let the New Zealand soldiers on board until they realised who they were. They were then hauled on board by wounded Greek soldiers.
