Homecomings: From Tauranga to the Trenches

Friday 09 November to Monday 12 November




Fri 09 November to Mon 12 November


Memorial Park, Tauranga

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 Memorial Park. Homecomings, the final From Tauranga to the Trenches exhibition, explores the experiences of local soldiers returning home. 

The exhibition is weather dependent.
