Wanted Pre WW1 NZ Training Maps, records and documents

Postby NZrelichunter » Thu Sep 08, 2016 3:05 pm

Hi everyone
If there is anyone out there that could point me in the right direction for NZ pre WW1training maps.
Im unsure if anyone in this group may have some or has come across any.
im looking for maps, plans, documentation, diaries any records that gives information.
Before NZ went to war there were military camps held throughout nz, throughout the year. During these camps soldiers would go on maneuvers, artillery would practice firing rounds and the public was allowed to come and watch.
Im happy to pay for photocopies and postage or if you can scan them i would appreciate it.
If you know where diaries or books are i would loved to know about them
Thanks

The best book I have found for information on Territorial camps is 'Under Canvas' by Startup.
It lists all the camps of over 150 men and includes numbers and units at each camp.
The book was done for stamp and postmark collectors but has a lot on information for us.

Hi Barry
Could not find any information on the internet about the book Under Canvas by startup?
Any more ideas where it might be sourced. Do you have the authors full name?
regards

Under Canvas, Postal History of the Territorial Military Camps of new Zealand. AL Breen and RM Startup. Published by the Postal History Society of New Zealand, July 1993. ISBN 0-9085588-15-1
Papers past is also a good source of information.
