Professor Charlotte Macdonald discusses the presence of around 18,000 imperial soldiers in New Zealand from the 1840s to 1870. Is this a story for southern as well as northern New Zealand? How do the men, and also a few women, of this garrison connect Dunedin to New Plymouth, Auckland, Calcutta, Sydney, Colchester and the Cape in the mid-nineteenth century?

Where do we find the legacy of a world of red uniforms and bugle calls?
