An Epitome of Official Documents Relative to Native Affairs and Land Purchases in the North Island of New Zealand

Enrolment of Native JForce

Enrolment of Native JForce.

The next measure I have adopted is the enrolment of a Native force, composed of the inhabitants of New Zealand, and officered by British officers, upon the plan of the Cape and Ceylon Rifle Corps. I have given the necessary authority for the enrolment and disciplining of sixty men, who will receive rations and pay. So soon as I find how the experiment succeeds with this small body, I will, if I think it advisable to do so, continue gradually to increase the strength of this force.
