Snow fight at Brockenhurst

Snow fight at Brockenhurst

New Zealand 'blue boys' from Ward 7, No. 1 New Zealand General Hospital, Brockenhurst, prepare for a snow fight, 3 April 1917. 'You would get a surprise', Bill Malcolm told his family, 'if you saw me now rigged out in a suit of blues, white shirt and collar and red tie. Some kid.' This uniform was worn by servicemen convalescing in England to distinguish them from civilians and able-bodied soldiers.
