Marines @ Mahia

Marines at Mahia

25th - 28th October 2013 - The New Zealand Military Vehicle Collectors Club is organising an event called 'The Marines @ Mahia'.  This is to celebrate the 70th anniversary of when the US Marines landed on the beach at Mahia - Hawkes Bay.  The Marines carried out their practice landings in their island hopping campaign across the pacific to fight the Japanese.  Sadly most of them lost their lives.

The organisers would like to invite you to attend!  There will be a plaque for the US Ambassador to unveil along with military parades, vehicle displays and rides.  There will also be an area for American cars to park to be displayed. 

The main event will be on Sunday 27th October.  Commemorations will take place from 10:30am.
