Mys­tery of the An­zac Day poster girl

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Mil­ton Cas­sidy has an An­zac Day mys­tery he would like to solve.

Mr Cas­sidy at­tended the dawn pa­rade at the Auck­land War Me­mo­rial Mu­seum and af­ter the cer­e­mony he stepped up to the ceno­taph to see the wreaths that had been laid, read the mas­sages and look at the pho­to­graphs.

‘‘Left there no doubt by friends and rel­a­tives who still re­mem­ber their loved ones that had fallen in the Great War.’’

Mr Cas­sidy says he was speak­ing to one woman there who had made an oval shaped card­board poster with hand drawn red pop­pies around the out­side of it.

‘‘In the mid­dle of the poster was writ­ten a beau­ti­ful poem.

‘‘She was quite emo­tional and we spoke about how for­tu­nate we were to have such brave young men and woman who had made the ul­ti­mate years ago.’’

Mr Cas­sidy took some pho­tos of the poster and one of her and promised to email them to her.

Un­for­tu­nately she left be­fore the pair had ex­changed email ad­dresses.

‘‘All I know is her name is Jan and she is from Grey Lynn.’’ Jan was wear­ing a red coat. Mr Cas­sidy is hop­ing some­one can help him find Jan so he can send her the pho­tos he took.

Con­tact Mil­ton Cas­sidy on 021 594 7484 or email it­mdgr@xtra.co.nz if you can help him.
