Request for information

Dear NZHA members,

We have another request for information from someone within Great Southern Television who is doing research for a television series based on Sir Edmund Hillary’s life. There are some scenes based in the Hautu Detention Camp in 1941 which feature a ‘screw’ in a uniform, and the researcher has been able to find very little about these wardens, apart from a brief description of them wearing an all black uniform.

If anyone has any further information they can add, it would be hugely appreciated.
