On Anzac Day 1964 the hall of memories was opened beside the carillon in Wellington. The hall, designed by William Gummer, had initially been planned as a national First World War memorial, but when it eventually opened it honoured those who had died in four wars – the South African War, the First and Second world wars and the Korean War. The centrepiece was the statue of a mother and child by Lyndon Smith. This film shows the opening of the hall.
