At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, an Armistice was signed that ended the First World War.

To commemorate the centenary of Armistice Day, the Fields of Remembrance Trust has laid out a field, called the Memorial Field, with 18,277 white crosses, each bearing the name of a New Zealander who lost their life in the conflict.

A separate field, called the Brothers Field, will remember those families who lost more than one family member – nearly 700 mothers lost more than one son. This field will be positioned by the lone Gallipoli Pine, surrounded by poppies.

The crosses and informative light boxes telling stories of war and sacrifice will be on display at Auckland Domain in front of Auckland War Memorial Museum.

Suitable for all ages.
