lest we forget

Imagine a green field with stunning views over the Hauraki Gulf. Then take that same field and add 5000 white crosses – the effect is sobering.

Lest we forget

A remembrance of the 92nd anniversary of the Battle of Passchendale, it’s a moving tribute to the more than 5000 New Zealanders killed by the time they were withdrawn from Flanders in February 1918, over double those killed at Gallipoli. It was, and still is, the greatest sacrifice ever made by New Zealand in the amount of lives that were lost.

The commemorative events also included a display of photographs, battlefield artefacts, movies and information as soldiers journeyed from Gallipoli to Passchendale.

Each of the white crosses was produced by staff at Abilities painted in donated Resene Lumbersider white. Displayed across the former parade ground at Fort Takapuna in Devonport, adjacent to Narrow Neck Camp where many of the Maori and Pacific Island volunteers were trained, the crosses remind us of their sacrifice alongside other soldiers from all over the country.
