Shovels & Guns
Documentary
"My great uncle's photo album shows the formation of the Pioneer Battalion in Auckland in 1914. It's a personal story, a Maori story and a New Zealand story that deserves to be told." Brendon Butt

Shovels & Guns is the story of The Native Contingent which became The Pioneer Battalion; from its very formation to the bloody battlefields of Gallipoli and the Western Front.
