Description: TRENTHAM RIFLE RANGE: 1914 usage of KEVII 1d Letter Card to Dunedin with very fine strike of the rare 'TRENTHAM RIFLE RANGE/31OC/14/NZ' cds (Wooders rated 9), a bit soiled and some abrasions on the reverse. Robin Startup states "open annually" until 1921. John Murr at p97 makes no mention of use of the Rifle Range cds at the Trentham Military Camp, where the PO opened 15.10.1914. [Excellent message headed "Trentham" states "...The men up here are a fine lot...there are a lot of the Legion of frontiersmen a corps formed in the North Island all grizzled men who have seen service in all parts of the world..."]
