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.

Who am ?
I am an avid family history researcher who has always been interested in Military History. From a young age I spent hours with my grandfather a veteran of World war 2 in the British Legion Club in Isleworth listening to the old soldiers. I even went with him and his fellow Dunkirk Veterans to Dunkirk for their yearly pilgrimage. It was a moving experience. I married a Kiwi in 1990 and here I am. With the advent of the 100 year anniversary of WW1 I want to record 100 NZ Memorials and look at the men on those memorials. Obviously not all of them, but at least some and definately record all their names dates of death and other details to remind us all of their sacrifice.
