Balls, Bullets and Boots

What an amazing exhibition at the Rotorua museum which links our All Blacks and ANZAC, looking at the First World War through the eyes of 15 NZ rugby players. Taeotu One did not know that the All Blacks in 1914 were playing against Australia in Sydney and decided to instead of travel back to NZ on the big ship head to war as a unit. 13 out of the 20 All Blacks were killed representing our country. 
We tried on authentic army uniform...
The trench coats were so heavy we have no idea how they ran in these...
We looked at how the war began...
We learnt about Allies...
We compared current ABs with the ABs 109 years ago...
We were able to smell what dead bodies and soldiers breaths smelt like!!!!
We highly recommend Balls, Bullets and Boots exhibition... Lest we forget

  4. Wow I didn't know that the All Blacks went to war! I bet you guys learnt a lot of things of what happens in the war and what happens to the people who live to come home to their family! We wish we we're there to learn about the war! From Rory and Ellie, Te Roro 3.
