Call for Soldiers Photos

As we prepared for our Military Memories display which started on Anzac Day, we noticed that one of our resources - a display book on men who served in WWI and WWII - seemed a little short on photos. If you have a relative who served in either of those conflicts, and would like to share a photo of them in uniform, please contact us.

Pictured left is Private William Flett who died at the battle of Messines, Belgium, 7 Jun 1917, age 30. He previously was a partner in the well-known Flett Bros bakery business in Otautau. The photo is from the Auckland War Memorial Museum's Cenotaph Database. It is one of only a handful of photos we have men who served.

We're open Wednesdays and Sundays, 2pm-4pm, and by request. Your comments are always welcome!
