    A New Zealand campaign medal awarded to Imperial and Colonial troops in the New Zealand Wars of 1845 - 47 (also 1848) and 1860 - 66.  The New Zealand Wars were previously known as the Maori Wars, Anglo-Maori Wars or Land Wars.  The medal was authorised in 1869.

    A full size and miniature replica of the medal awarded to William Dawson Webster photographed here with a large group of Waireka Battle Veterans sitting together near Ngamotu. 

    These are to be worn by his Great Great Grandson in the next Anzac Day march alongside replicas of his own father's, Grandfather's and Great Grandfather's medals.
