National Ceremony - 1914 Occupation of German Samoa

National commemoration to mark the 100th anniversary of the New Zealand occupation of German Samoa. Held on the Court of Honour, The Cenotaph, Northern Façade.

When war broke out in Europe in August 1914, Britain asked New Zealand to seize the German colony of Samoa as a ‘great and urgent Imperial service’. This commemorative service recognises the duty and sacrifice of those involved, and acknowledges the close personal and political connections between Sāmoa and New Zealand today.
