WW1 Great Barrier Island Soldiers

posted Jul 11, 2014, 5:28 PM by Rendt Aotea
The WW1 exhibition at the Aotea Art Gallery has now ended, and we would like to thank all those who contributed information and articles for this.
In particular, we would like to extend our gratitude to Jan and Murray Willis for their display of memorabilia, which included guns, photographs, medals and detailed information.  
Thank you to all the families who provided photographs and information about their loved ones, just having a photo of the young men who gave their lives in WW1 put a human face to the War and made the exhibition a very emotional one for those families and anyone reading their plight.
