#WWIIPOD Maori 28th Battalion January '45; Italy

"Men of 28th (Māori) Battalion marching north of Faenza, Italy, in January 1945. They are moving out of the line approximately 2 km from the enemy-held Castel Bolognese.

Having spent several years in the deserts of North Africa, many members of the 'Div' were not prepared for the cooler climate that greeted them when they arrived in Italy in late 1943."
