Part 4 of 4
Captain J. S. King [Military Service no. 9631] presents the weekly radio talk about sports events in the 2NZEF in Egypt.
In the final part of his sports talk, Captain King talks about meeting up with various New Zealand sporting personalities who are serving in Egypt: Percy Stiver - a Whanganui rugby and cricket player; Steadman and Dennis Coombe - two well-known New Zealand tennis players; the Luxford brothers - Whanganui rowers and Captain Johansen - a well-known golfer in Wairarapa and Hawkes Bay, who is adjusting to playing on sand courses in Egypt

This item is part of a collection of recordings made by the Mobile Broadcasting Units, which travelled overseas with New Zealand forces between 1940-1945. They recorded New Zealanders' experiences of war and messages to their families and friends, which were sent back home to be played on a weekly radio programme.
