Mt Eden Memorial, Auckland - 28 February 2011

Have finished deciphering the names on the Memorial in Mt Eden, outside the Mt Eden Normal Primary School.   Have managed to find details on all  the men listed except for two (but will continue to try).   I have found some interesting and poignant stories from the memorial which I will blog over the next couple of days.

The memorial itself was unveiled by Governor-General Lord Jellicoe on the 16 February 1924 and below is an extract from the Evening Post of his words at the event.
