Billy the Bus To Honor Veterans (67* d) RE: To Honor Veterans 09 Nov 04


anzac day (25 April) is our 'Vet's Day' in NZ. However, this Armistice Day, we have have a major remmberance in Wellington.

A WWI Vet has arrived back in NZ, after the best part of 90 years in a French War Grave. Tomorrow, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, he'll start his (hopefully) final trip to become our Unknown Warrior. Check the site - it's a nice story, with daily updated photos and stories of his return. He's just one of almost a third of our NZ war dead who were never accounted for.

If you browse round our NZ National War Memorial site, you'll find a bronze sculpture of a woman with two kids - the "Unknowing Worrier" - who got the message "Missing in Action" - and nothing more....

"When will we ever Learn"?

Peace - Sam
