Probus Club of Johnsonville Visits Pukeahu National Memorial Park

Pukeahu National War Memorial Park in Wellington is the place For New Zealanders to remember and reflect on the country’s experience of war, military conflict and peacekeeping.

Created in 2015 the Park is also a place for memorials from countries with which New Zealand has a shared military heritage. Members of the Probus Club of Johnsonville recently visited the Park and can be seen standing under the United Kingdom’s monument which comprises a memorial tree taking the form of the trunks of an English Royal Oak and a New Zealand Pohutukawa intertwining to form one single canopy.

A silhouette of a single soldier can be seen between the branches representing the union of two countries which have stood side by side in times of conflict and peace.
