Passage to the edge

From the Other End of the World: Memories of post war immigrants to New Zealand from Great Britain is an “enlightening read” bringing “to life an often forgotten period of history”, says the Telegraph’s Leah Hyslop. “Between 1947 and 1975, over 100,000 British people moved to New Zealand under an assisted migration scheme. Nicknamed ‘£10 poms’, in reference to the price of their passage, these migrants underwent enormous difficulties in resettling abroad, but their stories have rarely been told. In R.K. Dean’s collection of narratives From the Other End of the World, eighteen of these ‘testers and typists, sheep shearers and clerks, printers, nurses … and seventy other kinds of worker besides,’ are finally given a voice.”
