In 1870 a special unit of Maori loyal to the Crown was raised in the Arawa tribe region. Consisting of two companies, each of 100 men, it became the Arawa Flying Column. They were engaged in the pursuit of the Hauhau leader Te Kooti and his allies until 1872. For his actions, Gilbert Mair was awarded the New Zealand Cross. He carries a Spencer carbine and like his men wears a shawl around his waist.
