Situated in the grounds of the Auckland Museum, North Island
The beautiful War Memorial display inside the museum
Here there are name lined walls plus books containing lists of the war dead.
The National Cenotaph is situated outside this building.
I have a few photographs taken of parts of the wall which is covered in names of the War Dead.
and just in case it helps someone here is a photograph of one of the pages from the memorial books laid out in the museum. Please excuse the pencil ticks - mine!
