Von Tempsky and the Forest Rangers
“The legendary Forest Rangers were an irregular corps that fought during the New Zealand Wars. Raised initially for scouting duties with the Britich Imperial forces prior to the invasion of Waikato, the Forest Rangers soon proved themselves adept at bush fighting against North Island Maori resisting the dubious land-grabbing policies of the Colonial Government. Never more than 100 strong, and superbly led by the indomitable soldier-settler William Jackson and the Prussian adventurer Gusavus von Tempsky, the Forest Rangers took the fight to Maori in their own bush environment.”
