Wallace Mounted Rifle Re-union program

Here are some images of a rare program for the Wallace Mounted Rifles First Re-union at the Crown Hotel, Otautau, 13 July 1913. Photos courtesy of Ken Chilton.

Quote: "This for the waxen Heath, and that for the Wattle-bloom,
This for the Maple-leaf, and that for the southern Broom.
The Law that ye make shall be law and I do not press my will,
Because ye are Sons of The Blood and call me Mother still."
--Rudyard Kipling

Quote: "Some ha'e meat and canna' eat,
And some may eat that want it;
But we ha'e meat and we can eat,
and sae the Lord be thankit."
--Robert Burns

Note: We're closed for the winter but will open again in October 2015. You can request an individual visit by request if you would like to see the museum in person.
