The second big batch of sick and wounded soldiers to return to New Zealand arrived by the troopship Tahiti today. The grey painted liner made port shortly after midnight and anchored in stream, where she remained until she could be cleared by the authorities. The medical and records staffs went off at 7.30 a.m., and were soon busily engaged in examining the men, arranging their conveyance to various parts of New Zealand, and paying them, etc. With some 491 men on board all told this was no small task. The total included 27 hospital cases and 59 convalescents.
Later in the morning the Tahiti was visited by the Hons. James Allen (Minister of Defence), A. L. Herdman (Minister of Justice), and G. W. Russell (Minister of Public Health), Brigadier General Robin. (Officer Commanding the Forces), Surgeon-General Henderson (Director of Medical Services), and Lieutenant-Colonel Pilkington.
