Four Tauranga men died during the bloodiest period of Passchendaele – Albert Wasley, Sydney Carl Jordan, William Cunningham and Cecil Guinness. I Died in Hell tells the story of Carl Jordan through his own words and those of his friends.
The exhibition includes excerpts from letters written by Carl and his friends and gives attendees an insight into what these men experienced and endured during the battle. The exhibition also includes film footage from WW1.
Tauranga City Council’s Heritage Collection in partnership with WW100 Tauranga have created this latest From Tauranga to the Trenches exhibition, which will be on display at three different locations across the city.
The series has been made possible thanks to a grant from the New Zealand Lottery Grants Board.
