This marching song was written in 1939 by Corporal Anania Amohau of the Te Arawa, and it was later put to music by the bandmaster of Trentham Camp.  It was one of the most popular songs of the New Zealand Division during the Second World War

And take the honour of the people with you !

And we'll, march, march, march to the enemy !
And we'll fight right to the end !
For God ! For King ! and for Country !
Aue !

Ake ! Ake ! Kia Kaha E
