 21st Reinforcements NZMR

Moscar Camp

May 1917

The 21st Reinforcements spend the months of April and May camped at Moscar and see some aeroplanes that are stationed there. This would certainly have been a first for many of the troopers. There is still an airfield there today and it was a British airfield  during the Suez crisis of 1956. Please note that some of the dates on the photos refer back to April 1917.

From these pictures you can see that there were many crashes there. Still finding their wings!!
