Leave a tribute or memory of
Leslie George Arnold
On the 16th of July this year we were privileged to be able to visit you Les, to see where you were laid to rest 100 years ago today in Ploegsteert Wood Military Cemetery, Belgium. You are not forgotten and you are in a truly beautiful place.

Les was one of twelve first cousins to serve in WW1. He was a country lad brought up at Korere in the Motupiko Valley and later the family moved to Three Channel Flat near Inangahua, where they had a small farm and Arnold's Hotel. I also visited Les’s grave in Ploegsteert Wood on July 16 2017, during a tour of The Somme and Ypres salient Battlefields. He is in a truly beautiful place and with his mates. I submit this on the 100th anniversary of his death. He lies about 2km from where the Christmas Truce was held and in the middle of a wood.
