[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
18,277 individual named crosses, one for each New Zealand soldier or nurse killed in the Great War.

At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918 an Armistice was signed which ended the First World War.

There is s separate section for members of the same family who were killed.

This view is only a small part of the whole area.

Families can remove the crosses at the end of the memorial

This is the picture of the insanity of the so-called "humans."
Fantastic cry of pain and despair.
My honors Jack.

Must be a moving sight to be there, and to think this is just a small fraction of those killed. It was supposed to be the war to end all wars but sadly this was not the case. A massive percentage of New Zealand population. TFS

Hello Jack,
Amazing image of despair...Impressive composition...It's just a small part of what the war can do....
