The first New Zealand Legion of Frontiersmen Conference took place in Shortland Street in Auckland on the orders of Captain Ernest D'ESTERRE and was chaired by Captain FORBES-EDIE. It was decided at this Conference to offer the Central Government two squadrons of LOF Mounted Rifles. Both would be fully equipped and available at 24 hours notice. The offer also included a Merchant Captain and crew to man a troop transport ship. This offer was declined.
