Wellyscapes: A field of crosses

The First World War centenary commemorations are gathering much steam here especially in the approach to ANZAC Day later this month. Back in August, to mark the start of WW1 and very close to where NZ’s declaration of war was made on 5 August 1914, a Field of Remembrance was created in the grounds of parliament.

  2. Somehow, I’m missing your blogs and then must track them down. It’s disheartening to see a field of crosses of soldier that died for our freedom. But, it’s a good photo of the crosses and knowing that you were there to remember.

    • Fields of remembrance are beautiful but very solemn places. Last week I visited a new one installed in part of our botanic gardens, timed around our memorial day (which is today). Quite a few have popped up around NZ and I imagine it might continue as we go through the major anniversaries of WW1.
