Official opening of Pukeahu National War Memorial Park

This morning I attended the official opening of Pukeahu National War Memorial Park here in Wellington.

A deeply moving occasion as we approach the 100th anniversary of our Gallipoli campaign.

I cannot Imagine how the many thousands of people who attended the original opening in 1932 felt at the time, being, as it was, so close to the end of World War I, but I can say it was an enormous privilege to be at this opening and re-dedication of the war memorial.

Lest we forget.
