  • Hello. I am a retired colonel of the Belgian Army.
    On one of my visits of the battlefields and cemeteries of WW I in the West of Belgium last year I discovered the name of Pvte Paul Anaru from Rotorua, fallen in the battle of Messines in June 1917.
    As I planned already a trip to New Zealand with a stay in Rotorua I convinced the Mayor of Messines to give me a memorial plaque of his town. I will hand over this plaque to the Anaru family on Thursday 15 March 2018 at the cemetery of Rotorua.
    The text I wrote on the back of this plaque : " In honour of Paul Anaru who gave his life for our freedom 100 years ago. Lest not forget. "
    Public - Chris - 7 March 2018
