He haka mō te Kīngi o Kirihi ki Īhipa i te tau 1941

E whakatū ana te Ope Taua Māori i te peruperu rongonui o Te Arawa mō te Kīngi o Kirihi ki Helwan ki Īhipa i te marama o Hune i te tau 1941. Kātahi tonu nei te ope taua ka tauitia mai i Kirihi me Kiriti, i muri i te whakaekenga mai o Tiamani. Ka whawhai te Māori puta noa i te pakanga ki Īhipa atu i te tau 1941 ki te tau 1943. He nui ōna aituā, heoi i rongonui rātou mō tō rātou hautoa.
