The Black Singlet Brigade by Tony Walsh

The Black Singlet Brigade 1Tony Walsh was first introduced to NZ’s bush clad ranges, to pig hunting and some life defining experiences by Ned Tuite whose usual attire was a black woollen singlet and a pair of khaki shorts suspended from a thin leather belt. Through Ned Tony met a band of iconic good keen men of an era now past, and began a journey of experiences he will never forget.

There were the likes of ugly Eddie who ate all the pigs’ ears, Jack, who thought the ghosts were after him after a midnight tumble down the hill’ or Charlie, who didn’t know whether to mash his spuds before or after they were cooked. Men who were as colourful and multifaceted as the forests and mountains they came from.

The “Black Singlet Brigade is a memoir written with eloquence and a dash of humour at every turn. It combines the untamed beauty of the wild with hilarious adventures and unique characters to build a picture of a life long gone in the bush and back country of New Zealand.
