Anzac Day Services – We Shall Remember Them

Its 103 years since the start of the first world war (1914), and close to 80 years since the start of the second world war (1939).

Very few veterans will be taking part in the parades that fought in the second world war, however many of  the other conflicts will have veterans participating. Here are the times for the services out West and the cenotaph (Auckland War Memorial Museum) in Central Auckland, should you wish to attend any of the services and remember those that served our country in the various conflicts that have plagued and continue to plague our world -We Shall Remember Them.

In a separate story , a short story about the Secretaries father, Jack Riddell, who lived in Te Atatu South for 49 years  and won the military medal.
