Dedication of the National War Memorial, Wellington

On Anzac Day 1932 huge crowds attended the dedication of the new National War Memorial to those who died in the Great War. The memorial was a carillon – a large musical instrument consisting of bells – in Mt Cook, Wellington. It was intended to be played on anniversaries of significant military events and also to be broadcast over the new medium of radio. After the Second World War a hall of memories was added to the front of the carillon as a memorial to those who had died in all of New Zealand's wars. In 2015 the Pukeahu National War Memorial Park was opened at the site.
