Description

While it’s focus is the eastern bays of Wellington Harbour the story is typical of all small New Zealand communities whose sons and daughters served in the Boer War or World War 1.

Drawing on national and local archives, published war histories, contemporary music and art, and family collections, it provides a moving, revealing and colourful account of a momentous time in New Zealand’s history.
