Mystery of the Anzac Day poster girl
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.
