  • We will not forget what our soldiers did for our country, some came back , some didn’t make it , those who came back were never the same. I am proud of our soldiers and our family was devastated as all the young men had to leave to go to war. May the young ones never forget what sacrifices these young men went through in order for war to end.
    We will never forget ... thank you to all the family members who went to war . I’m thinking of Walter who never had a chance to have a family and lost his life overseas and one day we will bring your body home to NZ.
