A very nice photograph.  Can you please confirm which memorial this is.  It is quite common to find people on more than one war memorial.  I live in the UK and many men who emigrated to NZ before WW1 and died serving in the NZEF are commemmorated on war memorials in the town here where they lived before emigrating as they still had family living locally.  Graham

Thanks for the links.  The Manwatu Roll only appears to be WW1 but maybe I am not reading it correctly.  Graham

I finally got around to reducing the size of the photographs I would like to post but was unable to do so as there are already attachments to the file and I need to change the name of the file.  How do I do that?  Graham

Hi Graham,

Right click on the photo, from the drop down box, you will see rename, it usually sits right at the bottom, type a new name in the text box, and press enter to lock in your change.

Cheers
