Purpose: Describe a moment in time for the soldiers.
WALT : Describe what and how the ANZAC soldiers would have:
1- Seen, 2- Felt, 3-Heard, 4- Smelt onboard the ship as they waved    
                     goodbye to their loved ones on their way to WAR!

As I sat on the edge of the large, hard steel ship with my legs dangling limply over board I could see…….my children waving and my wife crying.

I felt... lost. I don’t know how to use a gun.

I could hear soldiers sobbing and my wife screaming as if she was dying.

I could smell perfume in the air, smoke from the engine of the ship.

I felt lost. I’m shocked. I do not want to leave my family.
Hoera. 15/5/14

Toku Pepeha

Ko Ngatokimatawhoarua Te Waka
Ko Kirioki Te Maunga
Ko Pungakitere Te Awa
Ko Ngati-Tautahi Te Hapu
Ko Sheean raua Ko David oku Matua
Ko Hoera Toku Ingoa
No Kaikohe Ahau
