25th-28th Oc­to­ber 2013 The New Zealand Mil­i­tary Ve­hi­cle Col­lec­tors Club is or­gan­is­ing ‘Marines @ Mahia’. This is to cel­e­brate the 70th an­niver­sary of the US Marines land­ing on the beach at Mahia, Hawkes Bay. The Marines car­ried out their prac­tise land­ings in their is­land hop­ping cam­paign across the Pa­cific to fight the Ja­panese. Sadly most of them lost their lives.
