Other Wairarapa camps
Although Featherston was the main camp, there were several other military camps in the south Wairarapa. Tauherenikau was established in 1915 and was occupied at times until war’s end. Papawai Camp, by the rifle range east of Greytown, was set up and used for range shooting and machine gun training. Canvas Camp was attached to Featherston Camp. A special camp (C.1) was set up to bring unfit men up to army standards, starting at Canvas Camp in 1917 but soon moving to Tauherenikau.
