    Default New Zealand 2nd Echelon "The Blitztourist"

    I picked this up a little while ago and thought I would share it with you guys. Its a magazine produced by participants of the 2nd Echelon from New Zealand who were diverted from Egypt to the UK to help in the event of an invasion in 1940. They were stationed fairly close to were I live near Aldershot for a while and then on to Kent. When the Invasion did not arrive they were sent back to the Middle East and into Italy with the rest of the 2nd NZ Division.



    It doesn't seem like time in the UK was too tough !

    It would be nice to know if anybody recognises any of the Names.
