Remembering Featherston Military Training Camp

From Standing Room Only, 2:25 pm on 18 December 2016

More than 60,000 men went through Featherston Military Training Camp in World War One, and a plan to remember them is gathering momentum. The group behind the project believe it will highlight just how significant the camp was in local and indeed national history. They also know exactly what and who they want - large scale bronze sculpture specialist Paul Dibble. Jean McDowell of the Featherston Camp Sculpture Trust takes Lynn Freeman back to when the project started.
