Kiwi Down The Strada
Leslie Hobbs

Black and White photos. The death recently of Lord Freyberg, 'The General' or 'Tiny' as he was known to all members of the Second New Zealand Expeditionary Force, must have brought back many memories to the soldiers of the Division who served under him during the hard-fought Italian campaign.

Not, probably, that any of the men themselves would need to have their memories jogged on the subject of the war - and Italy. For there is no question what an unforgettable experience Italy was to all members of the Kiwi Division. Something, at any rate, deserving of a suitable memento after twenty years of peacetime living.

Designed primarily as just such a memento, this book should have instant appeal to all 'dinkum Kiwis' Leslie Hobbs was there in person - as a 'chairborne combatant, a journalist on the N.Z.E.F. Times and brings his keen powers of observation and his sense of fun to bear on the reactions of the Kiwis to Italy and Italy to the Kiwis.

His reflective though light-hearted chapters are backed up by a generous selection of wartime photographs taken by George F. Kaye, Official Photographer to the 2nd N.Z.E.F.; and for good measure a number of Neville Colvin's popular "Clueless' cartoons from the N.Z.E.F. Times

122pp. A commentary with Photographs by George Kaye and cartoons by Neville Colvin.
