He kapunga oneone ki te whakamaumaharatanga hōia ki Whanganui, 1925

E maka ana a Hope Gibbons i te kapunga one mai i te māra pakanga ki Belgium, hei whakamaharatanga ki ngā hōia Māori i mate ki te Pakanga Tuatahi. Ko te rangi tēnei o Anzac i te 25 o ngā rā o Āperira i te tau 1925. Kei ia pou te ingoa o ngā wāhi i pakanga ai te Māori, ka mutu he kapunga one mai i ērā whenua kei ngā take o ia pou. Tōpū, e 336 ngā mate, e 700 ngā taotū. He tokomaha tonu rātou ka mate i te hokinga ki te wā kāinga, nā ngā taotū, nā ngā tahumaero hoki o te pakanga te take.
