They were just recovering from the depression. They provided 200,000 troops.Women had to work in factories making weopons,tobacco,on farms,in shops,etc.The men and women back home set up committies to support the troops overseas by providing extra food,tobacco,blankets,guns etc. When servicemen returned from war they were put in training schools.Men returned to their regular jobs,but many women stayed in paid work.This lead the way for women in work in New Zealand.
