Gallipoli and World War I

 stitched by the Whakatane Guild


From the guild
This panel depicts the events and areas of the New Zealand Force’s involvement in and around ANZAC
Cove area during World War 1, and some of the memorials that have since been created.
One front tends to look like another as the reality of war set in, especially with the mud. Banners
name the various battles in which the Kiwi forces were involved.
