Manawaru and War

Since the founding of Manawaru, men and women served their community and  country.  The first was Frederick Ernest Hughes who served in the Boer War from 1902 to 1904, with the Ninth South African Contingent of the Imperial Troops in the Transvaal.  He would later become an national authority on drainage works as many drains were cut on farmland across the district and country.

 

Many more men from Manawaru would go on to serve in far away fields during the two major World Wars.
