23 October 2015

100 years ago this week the transport ship Marquette sank in the Aegean Sea while carrying a contingent of New Zealand troops and medical staff. 10 nurses, 19 medical corps and 3 soldiers drowned in the tragedy.

To commemorate the event on 23 October, the New Zealand Collection on level 4 of the Student Centre, has organised a small display.
