Although New Zealand lied at the other end of the world, so far away that her people had no need of black-outs, gas masks, or air-raid shelters, she played her full part in WWII. New Zealand pilots had distinguished themselves in the air fights over the North Sea, and the "Achilles," in the glorious battle of the Plate, which was manned very largely by New Zealanders. Moreover, the Dominion raised a large force for service overseas, commmanded by Major-General B. C. Freyberg, V.C., who played such a gallant part in the Great War, both on Gallipoli and in France.
