KIA KAHA

through the changing of the seasons
they wait for Reveille
foreign shores holding our dead

Herewini Whakarua, a Maori Battalion soldier from Waitotara, who fell on the battlefields of Europe, was chosen to represent our WW1 fallen.  His statue stands in the Moutoa Gardens (Pākaitore), Whanganui.
