Two thousand four hundred and twelve New Zealanders died in the Passchendaele Offensive that began 31 July and ended 30 November 1917.

New Zealand troops were involved in two major attacks the Battle of Broodseinde on 4 October and our darkest day the Battle of Passchendaele on 12 October.

This symbolic field in the Auckland Domain commemorates all those men, who died one hundred years ago.

A century on this brutal conflict still stands as one of the country's most terrible military tragedies and the greatest loss of life in a single day. Join us for this commemorative service, a time to reflect and remember the sacrifices of those who fought in the hope of securing a lasting peace.
