Sir,—I have the honour to forward for Your Excellency's information a second and more detailed report from Colonel Greer of the recent action at Tauranga.
The valour and discipline of the troops, and the ability of their Commander, were conspicuously displayed on this occasion, and the 43rd and 68th Light Infantry, on whom the brunt of the engagement fell, behaved in a manner worthy of the high reputation of these distinguished regiments. The conduct of the Colonial Forces also reflects the greatest credit upon them. The enemy appear to have fought with the most determined courage.
