  • This is the second time I have come to the Auckland Museum. The first visit, I was wondering around the hall with the names of the fallen, and stubbled on my great uncles name on the wall. I have come back to the Museum, and drawn to visit his name again. I am pleased there is this computer resources of looking Garfield up on line which provides more information. A sacrafic of a young life so we can have the life we have now.... very sad, but very thankful to my great uncle.
