The story of a New Zealand Military Training Camp and some account of the daily rounds of the troops.
This book was written with the idea of giving some inkling to the civilian mind of what a soldier’s life in a New Zealand training camp was like. Many of the heroes of Gallipoli, France, Mesopotamia and Egypt were trained at Trentham, and the Camp Commandant has witnessed the training at Awapuni and Trentham of men of every draft that has gone overseas. Visitors to the Camp tread where heroes have trod.
Covering the day to day routine the trainee soldiers went through before they shipped out to WWI. Full of black and white plates of soldiers during training and of camp staff. 188 pages, 24 leaves of plates
