Ngā hōia Māori ki Hapani, 1946–48

Ngā hōia Māori ki Hapani, 1946–48

Ko te minita matua o Jayforce, ko Pā Harry Taylor (tuawhā mai i te mauī) me ngā hōia Māori e wehe ana ki Ozuki, Hapanī i tētahi wā i waenga i 1946 me 1948. He wāhanga ēnei hōia nō te Jayforce, te ope o Aotearoa nō te British Commonwealth Occupation Force. He wāhanga Māori tonu tō Jayforce, i kīia rā ko D Squadron, o te Divisional Cavalry Unit, i noho rā i Hapani mai i 1946 ki 1948. I whakanōhia rātou ki te puni taone o Yamaguchi me Shimane ki te tonga o Honshu. E kake ana ēnei hōia i te tereina kia kawea ki te wahapū o Kure kia piki ki te kaipuke mō te wā kāinga.
