The First World War ended at 11am on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, 1918. War-weary soldiers celebrated little. Most simply wanted to go home.
The stories of our soldiers who made it back to Aotearoa will be told in a unique exhibition, accompanying the installation of the Field of Remembrance at the Tauranga waterfront.
Homecomings, the final From Tauranga to the Trenches exhibition, explores the experiences of local soldiers returning home.
The exhibition is weather dependent.
The exhibition will be re-located to Memorial Park, the location for the city’s official Armistice Day Centenary Service.
