The New Zealand branch of the Clan Matheson Society is having its annual meeting in Auckland on Sunday 30 July, and all members and potential members are welcome.  Please feel free to come along and help guide the branch’s activities over the next year, and meet other clan members.

The meeting is at the Logan Campbell building in the Auckland Botanic Gardens, on Sunday 30 July from 1pm to 4pm.

Three Mathesons are on a list of those called ‘military defaulters’, who refused to take part in the First World War.  This new article on the website describes how badly they were treated.
