TE PUKE ROLL OF HONOUR - WORLD WAR ONE - UNVEILED ANZAC DAY- 25 APRIL 2012

This Roll of Honour was made by collating the various Te Puke and district Rolls, the New Zealand Roll of Honour, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission web site, family members and a list that appeared in the Te Puke Times of the 27 March 1925. After research by myself and Ernie Dix, the NEW TE PUKE WORLD WAR ONE MEMORIAL was unveiled on ANZAC Day, 25 April 2012 and is on the wall of the Te Puke Memorial Hall.

These are the names of the boys on the new memorial. I have written a book on them, which will be published shortly. (March 2013)
