New Zealand Specialist, Trish Brown has created a display in the Heritage & Research window this month
to commemorate the centenary of Passchendaele.
One of the battles that
occurred during the warfare on the Western Front, Passchendaele, is often called
New Zealand’s darkest day. On a single day 843 New Zealand soldiers were killed
and over 1800 wounded.
Included in the display is the story shared by one of
our genealogy researchers about his grandfather who died on the Western Front.
Many of the deeply personal stories of New Zealand soldiers who fought at Passchendaele along with photos and maps of WW1 battlegrounds can be found on the interactive website Ngā Tapuwae, New Zealand First World War Trails.
you know that New Zealand women worked hard to raise a huge amount of money for
those in Belgium affected by the war? Some of them were rewarded with a medal
from Belgium. Check out their stories on the New Zealand WW100 site.
