Re: New Zealand Soldiers Tribute to Fallen Comrades
That video is excellent..
This has been a very tough time in NZ for our small tightly knit defence forces, we have lost 5 brave individuals over the last month on active duty.
The Haka is very emotive here in New Zealand, commonly seen as a challenge before going into battle, it as seen here is used as a mark of respect to fallen comrades.
I personally think the work our small deployment is undertaking is superb.
Our Small defence forces are always highly regarded. Back when we had a Strike wing of the Air Force, our guys in our 'old outdated' A4K skyhawks always gave other nations air forces in much more modern equipment a major surprise.
Our Army units have fought in every major action since the boer war, and have fought with distinction.
here is a video of the Ramp Ceremony for 2 fallen soldiers in Christchurch NZ on August 2012
Kia Kaha to all our service men and women who put their lives on the line every day
