The Rotorua community gathered in vast numbers for an occasion which was solemn, but also a celebration. The centenary of Armistice Day began with a commemoration service which was held at the Cenotaph in the Government Gardens. The service was followed by a range of family activities and entertainment. Photographer Ben Fraser took these photos. Ynys Fraser (left) and Evelyn Falconer pay their respects at the service. The Rotorua community gathers to remember.
