Description

Life at the Egyptian Military training camp at Zeitoun where in 1915 the New Zealand troops were trained before taking ship to Gallipoli. There are views of Cairo and Alexandria where troops went for rest and recreation. Though there are a few views of Gallipoli, these albums have no record of action. It is a view of life outside the battle zones. After Gallipoli back to Zeitoun and more training in preparation for the western front. Pictures of war torn Europe and finally an album depicting the glories of Paris. Throughout the albums Laurie Mackie and his comrades in arms feature. There is good identifying information throughout the albums. Photographs probably taken by Laurie C Mackie.
