World War One Memorial Project Update

We’re very impressed and gratified by the response so far to our World War One Memorial Project. Since its launch last month, we’ve had 95 images of New Zealand memorials contributed from all over the country.

The towns and cities so far represented are: Akaroa, Alexandra, Auckland, Cambridge, Eastbourne, Glenorchy, Hawera, Hokianga, Hunterville, Levin, Makara, Mangaweka, Matamata, Maxwell, Nelson, Opunaki, Pahiatua, Palmerston North, Patea, Picton, Pihana, Pirongia, Porirua, Portage, Rotorua, Shannon, Taihape, Te Aroha, Waverley, Wellington (National War Memorial, Brooklyn, Ataturk Memorial), and Woodville.

Have a look at the images on our Flickr site.

Many thanks to everyone who has participated to date. This is a long-term project, so we hope you’ll keep photographing New Zealand’s war memorials and posting them on Flickr, particularly if you live in an area that hasn’t been represented yet.

EDIT: This project is now closed.

  1. I did a paper at Vic last year where one of our assignments was to study a WW1 memorial, if you contact Kate Hunter up at Vic in the history department she might be able to tell students studying the paper this year about this project and they might upload pics, and will quite possibly have a lot of really useful information that they could share.
