The last duel fought in New Zealand

The last duel fought in New Zealand occurred in 1935 in Auckland. We reccomend Donald kerr’s The Smell of Powder: A History of Dueling in New Zealand as a comprehensive guide to the Duels fought in this country (all of them save this one in the 18th/19th Century)
