Opens up to readers the experience of the many New Zealanders who were introduced to army life at Burnham Camp. It traces the development of Burham Camp, and looks at the history of the wider Burnham community. It also gathers together insightful and entertaining anecdotes that are, with the passing of time, all too frequently lost to the historical record, with many of the stories in written form for the first time. Some well-known figures appear in the book - including a forthright young recruit by the name of Charles Upham. This book will appeal in particular to all those who have served at Burnham Camp, their relatives, students of Canterbury history and all those interested in the history of the New Zealand Army and the impact military service had on New Zealand life in the twentieth century.
