Main Article Content
During World War II, the Mobile Broadcasting Unit of New Zealand's armed forces recorded interviews and reports about the fighting and the day-to-day business of war, as well as thousands of simple messages home from servicemen, and a few women. Today, the 1600 surviving Mobile Unit discs form part of the sound archives of Radio New Zealand, held by audiovisual archive Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision. In this "sidebar" article which is a companion piece to "Voices from the War," the author describes some of the challenges she has encountered in capturing sound from the 80-year-old lacquer discs in the Mobile Broadcasting Unit collection.
