Auckland Dawn Service

Written by Juliana Austen on April 1st, 2016.      0 comments

Concerns have been raised around the role of Veterans in the Dawn Service at Auckland War Memorial Museum. See New Zealand Herald article HERE.
This year the Fields of Remembrance Trust established a Field of over 1600 white crosses named for the men and women from the Auckland region who died 100 years ago in 1915 and 1916.

The Trust has no part in the planning nor management of the Dawn Service Commemorations.
We understand and acknowledge concerns raised and feel it is important that disabled Veterans feel included in commemorations of their service and sacrifice. It is for the disabled veterans themselves to decide whether that be as honoured guests or as active participants.

We have passed on those concerns to the organisers.

The Fields of Remembrance Trust was established in 2012 to honour those who served and died for our nation during World War One.

The Trust is made up of the Passchendaele Society, the Royal New Zealand Returned and Services' Association, New Zealand (RNZRSA) representIng all local RSAs, and the Auckland RSA. It is a registered charity.
