Invercargill Repertory Society presents Maurice Shadbolt's NZ WW1 drama 'Once on Chunuk Bair'.

Once on Chunuk Bair is a drama depicting the outstanding bravery of the soldiers and the blundering incompetence of the British commanders.

The 8th of August 1915 has been called a nation-defining day. With inept British Generals watching from the safety of their battleships, nearly 800 men from the Wellington Battalion NZ Infantry Brigade stormed the hill of Chunuk Bair, above Gallipoli, and against overwhelming numbers of Turkish soldiers, held it. Later that night, after the command to retreat came, only 70 kiwi soldiers returned.
