Gone West; Piha's Kauri Bushmen and the First World War - A Talk by Sandra Coney

Hear Sandra Coney share her insights into the lives of the men from the Piha Sawmill commemorated on the WW1 Roll of Honour at Lion Rock Piha, the centre of Anzac commemorations on the West Coast.

Sandra has been researching these men for the last four years and her findings throw light onto the workings and social networks of kauri milling - in industry that has made an indellible impact on on the Waitakere Ranges and from which the Ranges are only now recovering.
