The 28th Maori Battalion website is a finalist in the Internet Providers Association Awards.

Developer Monty Soutar says it's proving its worth as a source of memories and histories.

Monty Soutar told Waatea News the site is drawing more than 3000 visitors per month.

It was launched two years ago by the Battalion Association in partnership with the Ministry for Culture and Heritage and Te Puni Kokiri.

The site includes a page for each of the 3600 battalion members where people can contribute memories, images or videos.
