The story of an iconic institution - the RSA - from its beginnings during the First World War through to the twenty-first century.
A highly illustrated look at a threatened icon of New Zealand culture – the RSA. The book will appeal to general readers interested in this readily identifiable but little-understood organisation. It tells of the trials and tribulations of returning soldiers wanting an organisation to represent them, and to make sure they received a fair deal as they settled back into domestic life after serving their country. The story is told not only in text but also through use of photographs and ephemera.
