Richard Seddon and New Zealand troopers

Premier Richard Seddon inspects the 6th Contingent before its departure from Auckland in January 1901. Seddon was a huge enthusiast for New Zealand's participation in the South African War. He saw it as emphasising New Zealand's loyal contribution to the British Empire, and he was able to exploit the public jingoism (extreme patriotism) unleashed by the war to further his personal popularity.
