Fit to Fight: Compulsory Mili- tary Training and National Ser- vice in New Zealand comme- morates the 100,000 men who were conscripted to serve in the army, navy and air force but were never sent overseas. The book was commissioned and funded by the North City branch of the Compulsory Mili- tary Training and National Ser- vice Association. The association's North City branch president Dennis Cassells-Minnoch served in the navy under the scheme. He said the book filled a gap in New Zealand military history. Many people didn't know about it [peacetime conscrip- tion]. They don't realise that even though we didn't go over- seas we also served.'' The book contains the accounts and experiences of more than 850 former con- scripted trainees. Mr Cassells-Minnoch hoped the book would shed light on how a different generation had to live. We just felt that we had to tell the stories to our grandkids and others.'' Author Peter Cooke said what the book had unearthed was the effect of service life on the con- scripted men. Most of them found it really beneficial.'' Fit to Fight: Compulsory Military Training and National Service in New Zealand, $75. Available from Whitcoulls and selected bookshops.

Photo: ANDY RADKE Tawa netball fan Charlotte Tomkies found herself on court during the Central Pulse and New South Wales Swifts game at TSB Arena. The 8 year old, alongside Jai- mie Blackie, 9, from Masterton, had won an ANZ Future Cap- tains competition. They got to meet Pulse captain Katrina Grant and Swift skipper Kimberlee Green. For Charlotte, who attends Redwood School, winning the competition was her first chance to see the Pulse compete in the flesh. I'm playing netball for the first time this year and I'm even more excited to start now.'' Extra pleasing was that the home side won 55-49.
