    Images from the service held this morning at my local war memorial.

    The Australian and New Zealand Ensigns.

    Locals who lost their lives during the Great War on a plaque inside the chapel.

    The inscription on the war memorial. It is significant as it was only the second erected in the country to commemmorate New Zealand's war dead.

    The individual in the photo is Pvt William Arthur Ham of the 12th Nelson Coy, who bears the dubious distinction of being the first New Zealand loss in combat of the Great War.

    [​IMG]

    A genuine WW2 veteran. This one came over from the UK after the war, whereas most war vet Jeeps in NZ arrived from the Pacific.

    Lest we forget.

    Excellent tributes. So far from home, in the cause of freedom and justice. We should never forget.
