The capture of the nine-mile Messines Ridge in Belgium on June 7, 1917, was arguably the greatest triumph of the British Army on the Western Front, and the NZRB was tasked with taking the village of Messines itself - a feat of arms achieved in under 12 hours.
During the heavy fighting at Messines, riflemen from the NZRB captured the underground German Headquarters, its commanding officer, and his staff.
