Description

Little known story from after WW1, when NZ troops waited months in Sling Camp in southern England after the war ended to get a ship home. * Rioting in the camp led to plans to keep troops busy by cutting a giant Kiwi into the chalk hill behind the camp. * The Bulford Kiwi has become a monument built by soldiers, not governments, for themselves and their mates. * In 2017 the Bulford Kiwi was made a protected heritage site by UK government.
