World War One Commemoration – 100 years
Significant milestones from World War One are being commemorated throughout New Zealand, right through to the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day on November 11, 2018.
Napier City Council is supporting local events, particularly those of the Napier and Taradale Returned Services Associations.
We plan to list local events that link to WWI commemorations here until 2018, and list what sites to visit for further information.
If you know of any events linked to WWI commemorations, please contact us.
