Half a world Away by Julia Stuart

Eastbourne in Wartime 1899 – 1922

The book covers three decades, two wars and one community whose families were separated by military conflict during the early twentieth century. While it’s focus is the eastern bays of Wellington Harbour the story is typical of all small New Zealand communities whose sons and daughters served in the Boer War or World War 1.

Drawing on national and local archives, published war histories, contemporary music and art, and family collections, it provides a moving, revealing and colourful account of a momentous time in New Zealand’s history.
