The Link With Britain facing page 28
This illustration, showing the deck of the Charlotte Jane, is reproduced from an original sketch made by Dr A. C. Barker on 25 October 1850. The Charlotte Jane was one of the 'first four ships' of the Canterbury settlement.
Maori and Pakeha, 1849 facing page 32
From a reproduction of the original sketch made by Sir George Grey at Lake Tarawera on 29 December 1849. It illustrates the baptism of Te Ngahue.
The Surrender facing page 50
A cartoon reproduced from Punch in Canterbury, 17 June 1865. At this time the colonists were inclined to criticise the ineffectiveness of 'regular' soldiers in warfare against the Maoris, contrasting them very unfavourably with local troops. According to some critics, the soldiers' ineffectiveness was partly due to British opposition to the war as a whole, while there was continual controversy between Governor Grey and General Cameron as to tactics. However, though many urged that colonial volunteers could cope with Maoris in a way in which 'the Queen's troops' could not (or would not), colonists bitterly resented the repeated suggestion that they should be taken at their word and left to fight with their own resources. page break
Sir Julius Vogel facing Page 66
This caricature by J. Leslie formed one of a collection, Parliamentary Portraits, published in Wellington in 1887.
'Treed' facing page 80
A cartoon by Trevor Lloyd published in The Auckland Weekly News, 10 December 1914. The caption to the original runs: 'Sir Joseph Ward has unfortunately chosen to identify himself with the naval subsidy system, which is still in vogue for New Zealand, and to oppose with some bitterness the "local navy" movement which has the support of the Massey Party, and is undoubtedly favoured by the country at large.' At the general election of 1912 Massey defeated Ward, and after consultation with the British Government, the Defence Minister, the Hon. (afterwards Sir) James Allen, carried through in 1913 the proposal for a New Zealand Division of the Royal Navy, to be partly manned by New Zealanders but to revert to Admiralty control on the outbreak of war. As the cartoon shows, Ward was emphatic in his opposition to the scheme. The cartoon is a good example of the work of Trevor Lloyd, whose topical cartoons were a feature of The Auckland Weekly News from 1903 onwards.
Sir Joseph Ward at the Imperial Conference, 1911 facing page 86
Reproduced from an original cartoon by E. F. Hiscocks now in the possession of the Alexander Turnbull Library, Wellington. It was at this Conference that Ward produced his grandiose scheme of imperial federation.
