Next on the agenda is the Raglan War Memorial.

I also took a midweek visit to Auckland War Memorial Museum to look at the Scars of the Heart Exhibition, which focuses on WW1, it is a great exhibition to take the kids to. I also bought a copy of a book through trade me called 'The Sorrow and the Pride'. It was written by Chris Macclean and Jock Phillips and is a book about NZ war memorials from the NZ Wars to WW1. I covers several issues about how memorials where organised, the architects and the changes in memorials from the NZ Wars to WW1. It is an interesting book (to those who are interested in such things). I also need to visit a few memorials in Auckland any suggestions?
