A prayer at Cassino


In this recording from 1945, Padre Wi Canon Te Tau Huata offers a prayer and the men of the Maori Battalion sing the hymn 'Piko nei te matenga'. It is most likely that this was recorded during a memorial held by the 2NZEF. Memorial Services were also held at Suda Bay and Sangro cemeteries.
