Palmerston North Memorial - 12 May 2011

Palmerston North Memorial was unveiled on the 7 February 1926 by the then Prime Minister Gordon Coates.  Coates had himself served in WW1 winning a Military Cross and a Bar.  Below is are two separate links to a newspaper reports on the "Not peace at any price " speech Coates gave while unveiling the memorial.  (when on links you have to scroll down page through other reports)



The photo of the memorial is not the best, when I get to Palmerston North myself I shall improve on it.  After some further research I have also discovered some other interesting memorials to visit in the area, including one dedicated to the Medical Corp.
