Central Leader - - News -

Those in­ter­ested in ex­plor­ing New Zealand’s mil­i­tary his­tory can visit an ex­hi­bi­tion of war graves in Three Kings.

The War Graves Trust is un­der­tak­ing a project to pho­to­graph all the graves and pri­mary memo­ri­als of New Zealand armed ser­vices mem­bers who died in con­flicts.

A se­lec­tion of the pho­to­graphs, which start from the An­glo-Boer War in 1899 to East Ti­mor, are on dis­play at the Ran­furly Vet­er­ans House, along with the sto­ries be­hind them.

There are 30,321 New Zealand war graves in 63 coun­tries, from France and Bel­gium to Bul­garia and Kenya.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will be open daily from noon to 7pm un­til April 28, ex­cept on An­zac Day to­mor­row, when it will be open from 9am to 7pm.
