Kiwi filmmaker uses rare war footage to honour Battalion

Gaylene Preston has completed a specially commissioned short film to honour the 24 Battalion for Anzac Day. The 12-minute film, which features a selection of rarely seen archival footage, will be projected continuously for three hours across the northern facade of Auckland War Memorial Museum. It captures the Battalion's departure, campaigns in North Africa and Italy and the faces of the young men that went to war to fight for their country.
