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.
