My goal is to personally visit and collate information from 100 New Zealand World War One memorials throughout New Zealand to commemorate the Centenary of World War One and to remember those who paid the ultimate price.

Pukekohe RSA War Memorial and Cemetery -27 March 2011
The Pukekohe RSA War Memorial and Cemetery is an interesting spot the Memorial itself features both and First and Second World War dead and is well kept. In front of the Memorial is the RSA Military cemetery for those who served in the forces and have since died. The Public Cemetery adjacent is also worth a stroll through with many interesting graves. I found a memorial to Captain Alfred Charles Bluck from Te Awamutu in the Waikato next to the grave of his parents. Captain Bluck died in the Dardenelles on the 22 May 1915. (He is not on the Memorial).
