More Info →Postcard from a Soldier Stationed at Awapuni Racecourse

Awapuni Racecourse was the site of an army training camp during WW1. The text reads, "Photo taken on some previous occasion before we arrived. The large grandstand with small turret is where we are quartered - the front being covered with tarpaulins. The next building is our Headquarters from which the flag flies - that is where the officers have their quarters - the commandants office and the general office. The next - a smaller grandstand where we often assemble for lectures. The building further on is the caretaker's house. The course is in front of the picture. Jim."
