MARINES @ MAHIA


Marines @ Mahia
The Marines @ Mahia was established to commemorate the US Marines landings in 1943 on the beach at Mahia
when preparing for their assault on Tarawa Atoll where many lost their lives.

In 2018 the 75th anniversary of the landings at Mahia will be commemorated at Labour Weekend.
It is expected 2018 will be a significant event with a ship of the Royal New Zealand Navy being present.
