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.

Palmerston North and Fielding - 12 May 2011
I was hoping to join my husband today on a trip to Palmerston North and Fielding to visit their memorials, but unfortunately a sick child prevented me going. I let hubby take the camera and he took the photos for me. I will visit myself at a later date (promise!) but for the meantime I will research the names on both memorials. Both memorials are impressive. It is a shame about the graffiti/vandalism on the Palmerston North memorial. I truly cannot understand the mentally of someone who desecrates such a precious memorial.

What is interesting about the Palmerston Memorial is that it commemorates the fallen from the local populace from several wars including the Falklands (Kiwis in British Army most likely)and most recently Afganistan.ReplyDelete
