More Info →Time to Speak: Breaking the Silence on the Shannon Military Defaulters' Camps and their Aftermath

An article about Whitaunui and Paiaka camps for conscientious objectors during WWII, officially called military defaulter camps.

It complements an article based on local information drawn from a range of archival and published sources, that appeared in the 2016 issue of the Manawatū Journal of History. After that publication and a subsequent lecture the author was approached by a number of people who had memories of the camp and this article is based on this new material.

This article was originally published in the 2018 "Manawatu Journal of History", and this copy extracted from that Journal for publication. It is a proof copy, although it is believed to be free of proofing errors.
