Summary - General Sir John MacNeill from Colonsay.

News that the medals, including the VC, which General Sir John MacNeill from Colonsay won in the Maori wars in New Zealand in the nineteenth century are being sold. Murdo MacKenzie, who lives in New Zealand, says that no one remembers him there now. He also describes how peace was made in the Treaty of Waitangi, but that the Maoris lost land and rights because they didn't understand it, with the result that they are still campaigning for both to be restored.
