The intriguing story of a 130m-tall kiwi carved into a hillside in southern England; a monument built by soldiers not governments for themselves and their mates. The Bulford Kiwi was created in 1919 by New Zealand troops waiting to go home at the end of World War One. Originally carved as a chore to occupy the hours of waiting for a ship back to New Zealand, it became an emblem to be proud of and a cherished link to home. For many of those involved in its construction, and later its resurrection, the Bulford Kiwi came to represent all those servicemen who passed through Sling Camp, especially those who would never go home.
