Digitisation of 'The Mataura Ensign' newspapers from 1915 to 1919.
The Mataura Ensign is based in Gore and covers the districts of Eastern Southland, Northern Southland and West Otago. To cover the local community’s experience of the war the Gore District Historical Society in partnership with the National Library and with sponsorship from Lotteries, Southland Community Trust, The Trusts Community Foundation, the Southland Regional Heritage Committee, and Gore District Council is having the newspaper digitised for the period 1915-1919.
The digitised copies of the Mataura Ensign will be available on the Papers Past website from June 2015. In the meantime you can explore how the community fared in 1914 and before on the Papers Past website.
