NZ'S FIRST WORLD WAR CENTENARY 2014–2019

Tauranga's Field of Remembrance

As part of Tauranga's commemorations of local lives lost in the First World War, a Field of Remembrance displays white crosses in public places throughout the city. 

Field of Remembrance, Masonic Park, Tauranga, August 2014

As part of Tauranga's commemorations of the local lives lost in the First World War, a Field of Remembrance displays white crosses in public places throughout the city. Each cross carries a red poppy and the name of an individual who died as a result of the war, 107 in total. The sight of so many crosses gathered together has prompted many people to stop and read the accompanying information panel, and to study the names of the fallen.

The Field of Remembrance has been treated with respect and awe at the considerable loss of life from the local community. The crosses will be erected in different locations throughout the city during the centenary commemorations.
