Extra special Anzac lesson<br />

• By Heidi Slade<br />

PEEBLES MONTESSORI Sumner<br />

pre-school pupils have been learning about<br />

the significance of Anzac Day – but for<br />

4-year-old Jack it is extra special.<br />

Jack gets his middle name, Heath, from<br />

his great-grandad William Heath Wingham<br />

who fought in World War 2.<br />

He has always had a special interest in<br />

the war and his great grandad, Jack’s mum<br />

Claire Waghorn-Lees said. •Turn to page 7<br />

lucky to<br />

another<br />

crash on<br />

Evans Pass<br />

• By Heidi Slade<br />

ANOTHER CAR has crashed<br />

and flipped on Evans Pass Rd –<br />

and again the occupants had a<br />

lucky escape.<br />

A hatchback failed to take<br />

the hairpin bend at the top of<br />

the road as it starts to descend<br />

towards Sumner.<br />

The crash happened at 1.15am<br />

on Saturday. There were five<br />

teenagers in the car, all of whom<br />

escaped with minor injuries.<br />

On Sunday, <strong>April</strong> 16, a Honda<br />

crashed about 1am and flipped<br />

further down the road.<br />

One of the car’s front wheels<br />

had snapped off and it was<br />

abandoned in the<br />

middle of the road.<br />

Second crash in two weeks on hillside<br />

•From page 1<br />

When firefighters<br />

reached the scene of<br />

Saturday morning’s<br />

crash, the car was found<br />

upside down. The group<br />

was shaken up when<br />

the brigade arrived, but<br />

grateful for the assistance,<br />

Sayer said.<br />

Sayer said the teenagers<br />

were very lucky the vehicle<br />

did not go off the road.<br />

“It definitely was lucky it<br />

didn’t happen on another<br />

stretch,” he said.<br />

If the crash happened<br />

further along the road, the<br />

car could have gone down<br />

the hillside.<br />

Sayer said the occupants<br />

of the car all looked to be<br />

about 16.<br />

He did not think the<br />

vehicle was stolen. Police<br />

are making inquiries into<br />

the circumstances of the<br />

crash.<br />

WIN<br />

Four generations of women experience love, loss, war and<br />

hope from the rise of Nazism to the Cuban Revolution and,<br />

finally, the fall of the Berlin Wall in this sweeping novel from<br />

the internationally bestselling author of The German Girl . Berlin,<br />

1931: Ally Keller, a talented young poet, is alone and scared<br />

when she gives birth to a mixed-race daughter she names Lilith. As<br />

the Nazis rise to power, Ally knows she must keep her baby in the shadows to<br />

protect her against Hitler’s deadly ideology of Aryan purity. But as she grows, it<br />

becomes more and more difficult to keep Lilith hidden, so Ally sets in motion a<br />

dangerous and desperate plan to send her daughter across the ocean to safety.<br />

Havana, 1958: Now an adult, Lilith has few memories of her mother or her<br />

childhood in Germany. Besides, she’s too excited for her future with her beloved<br />

Martin, a Cuban pilot with strong ties to the Batista government. But as the flames<br />

of revolution ignite, Lilith and her newborn daughter, Nadine, find themselves at<br />

a terrifying crossroads. Berlin, 1988: Nadine has spent her entire life avoiding<br />

the truth about her own family’s history. It takes her daughter, Luna, to convince<br />

her to uncover the truth about the choices her mother and grandmother made to<br />

ensure the survival of their children. And it will fall to Luna to come to terms with<br />

a shocking betrayal that changes everything she thought she knew about her<br />

family’s past.<br />

Vanished. In the blink of an eye.<br />

DCS Kat Frank knows all about loss. A widowed single mother, Kat is<br />

a cop who trusts her instincts. Picked to lead a pilot programme that<br />

THE LYTTELTON Studio<br />

Monastery will be one of 52<br />

buildings open to the public as<br />

part of the Open Christchurch<br />

architectural festival.<br />

The Bull and O’Sullivan<br />

designed stunner will be<br />

available for viewing on Sunday,<br />

May 7, from 9am-1pm.<br />

The 2015-designed building is<br />

described as taking an elegant<br />

stance over the harbour and has<br />

been called “monastic” by its<br />

architects.<br />

Built of recycled wharf<br />

timbers, the rough and<br />

weathered exterior belies the<br />

treasures within, with the<br />

lower level mimicking a ship’s<br />

quarters. A library has recently<br />

been added to the studio and<br />

living quarters.<br />

Open Christchurch, the<br />

annual festival of architectural<br />

excellence, will be held over the<br />

weekend of May 6-7.<br />

Among those buildings on<br />

offer are a selection of quiet<br />

achievers that sit off the beaten<br />

track and are open access, which<br />

means visitors can just turn<br />

up on the day at advertised<br />

opening times.<br />

Also designed by Bull and<br />

O’Sullivan, the Fonua ’o e maná<br />

Tongan Church in Wigram will<br />

be open on Saturday, May 6<br />

between 11am-2pm. Architect<br />

Michael O’Sullivan will be<br />

on site giving a free tour at 1pm.<br />

For those wanting to see<br />

several buildings at once, head<br />

out to New Brighton to visit the<br />

surf clubs and the Collins and<br />

Harman designed St Faith’s<br />

Church.<br />

schools. Experts will be on site<br />

Saturday and Sunday 10am-1pm<br />

to chat about the sustainability<br />

aspects of the building and how<br />

it serves as a teaching tool.<br />

Stay with education but head<br />

east to Te Aratai College and<br />

enjoy a student-led tour around<br />

the campus. A free architecture<br />

tour will also be put on at noon<br />

and 1pm on Saturday.<br />

In the central city, the<br />

Canterbury Officers’ Club,<br />

next door to CoCA, is a rare<br />

surviving example of modernism<br />

that predates the city’s affair with<br />

brutalism.<br />

Meanwhile the Rose Historic<br />

Chapel on Colombo St is a<br />

gorgeous gothic revival building<br />

commissioned by women, for<br />

women. Discover why this little<br />

building has so much historical<br />

and architectural value at a free<br />

talk on Saturday and Sunday at<br />

10am.<br />

New photo exhibition a series of firsts<br />

A NEW exhibition at Akaroa<br />

Museum tells the story of Banks<br />

Peninsula’s rich photographic<br />

history.<br />

Catching Shadows exhibition<br />

curator Daniel Smith has<br />

assembled more than 80 images<br />

from the museum’s collection of<br />

photographs, along with some<br />

significant loans from private<br />

and public collections.<br />

Presented chronologically, the<br />

exhibition showcases several<br />

local ‘firsts’.<br />

“We have the first local person<br />

to be photographed; the first<br />

photographer active in Akaroa;<br />

the first resident photographer;<br />

and the first woman photographer,”<br />

said Smith.<br />

“However, I hope that the real<br />

value of the exhibition is that it<br />

presents the beginnings of a discussion<br />

about the creation of the<br />

area’s photographic heritage.”<br />

Catching Shadows presents a<br />

feast of historic photography,<br />

showing people and landscapes<br />

from the past along with streetscapes<br />

in beautiful sepia tones.<br />

Beginning with the fabled<br />

Hone Tīkao daguerreotype<br />

portrait from the early 1840s,<br />

it proceeds to the first documented<br />

photographer working<br />

in Akaroa, Christopher Swinbourne<br />

in 1859, and traverses<br />

a century of visiting photographers’<br />

comings and goings.<br />

Works by Akaroa photographers<br />

Henry Watkins and his<br />

brother Will appear, along with<br />

that of Henry Billens and Arthur<br />

Gungall, who set up studios<br />

only to find their businesses<br />

struggled.<br />

“Then came the T. E. Taylor<br />

studio and the great Jessie Buckland<br />

in the early 20th century,<br />

followed by Donald J. McKay<br />

from Le Bons <strong>Bay</strong> in the 1950s,”<br />

said Smith.<br />

Thanks to a grant from<br />

the Ministry for Culture and<br />

Heritage’s Museum Hardship<br />

Fund, Catching Shadows is<br />

accompanied by an attractive<br />

exhibition catalogue created<br />

by Smith. The fund was set up<br />

to help cultural and heritage<br />

organisations in the wake of<br />

Covid-19.<br />

• The exhibition is open<br />

daily from 10.30am-<br />

4.30pm at Akaroa Museum<br />

Emily Blythe, CEO and<br />

Founder of aviation<br />

company Pyper Vision<br />

“Christchurch: Aerospace<br />

Capital of New Zealand”<br />

is a reality on the horizon<br />

At <strong>26</strong> years old, Emily Blythe has been named <strong>2023</strong> Spark<br />

New Zealand Innovator of the year for her work creating<br />

safe visibility at airports by dispersing fog using a specially<br />

designed, environmentally friendly drone. Emily, CEO and<br />

founder of Christchurch company Pyper Vision, originally<br />

pitched the idea as a 16-year-old high school student and has<br />

aviation in her blood. Her mum is an air traffic controller and<br />

her dad and grandad are both pilots who often got delayed due<br />

to fog issues, so naturally she started thinking about solutions.<br />

Fog delays and diversions are large costs for exporters, airlines<br />

and airports — Pyper Vision estimated that fog disruptions cost NZ$18.5<br />

billion a year globally. And diverted flights produce significantly more<br />

carbon emissions.<br />

Emily and Pyper Vision’s success is just one example of the city’s<br />

booming aerospace and aviation community that offers an abundance<br />

of opportunity. The scale of growth is huge and incorporates not<br />

just aviation and the obvious space flight and rocketry, but also<br />

manufacturing, engineering, geospatial mapping, data analytics,<br />

education, training and services.<br />

Why Aerospace in Christchurch?<br />

Canterbury is an ideal location for aerospace and aviation. It has a<br />

generous expanse of skies, clear airways, remote seas to the south and<br />

all with easy access to international sea and airports. And the Kaitorete<br />

Spit is technically the best site in Aotearoa for aerospace and space<br />

launch activity. The geographic advantage is backed by the city’s strong<br />

innovation ecosystem and advanced manufacturing sector, both of which<br />

help make Christchurch home to global leading companies working to<br />

minimise environmental impact.<br />

Pyper Vision themselves grew within the ecosystem, launching as a<br />

startup through Te Ōhaka’s innovation programme. Study pathways<br />

add strength to the sector with the University of Canterbury offering<br />

Aotearoa’s first aerospace minor as part of an engineering qualification.<br />

This is boosted by the strong network of aerospace companies nurtured<br />

by industry body Aerospace New Zealand. It is on a mission to create an<br />

aerospace business hub in Canterbury that exceeds $50+ million annual<br />

revenue by 2030 and already has 200+ Christchurch–based members<br />

including businesses and supporters.<br />

The economic impact is significant:<br />

Around the world innovation hubs associated with aerospace<br />

generate an economic ecosystem around themselves<br />

By 2050 the global value is estimated to be $2.7 trillion<br />

In Canterbury, the economic impact is estimated to be<br />

between $100 million and $1 billion already<br />

Aerospace New Zealand<br />

A not-for-profit industry body that promotes the interests of<br />

our city, our region, and our nation. Their mission is to grow<br />

a thriving Aotearoa New Zealand aerospace ecosystem that<br />

is highly regarded around the world. An inclusive and<br />

sustainable aerospace industry that aligns with Aotearoa<br />

New Zealand’s values in enabling environmental and social<br />

outcomes that improve the wellbeing of all New Zealanders.<br />

Dawn Aerospace<br />

Dawn Aerospace is building a space transportation network.<br />

They’re a leading provider of green propulsion for satellites<br />

and have hardware on 12 operational satellites. Dawn are also<br />

developing a rocket-powered spaceplane — an innovation<br />

that aims to increase launch capacity and space accessibility<br />

in a sustainable way.<br />

Fabrum<br />

World leaders in end-to-end liquid hydrogen systems that are<br />

currently being used to decarbonise the aviation, heav transport,<br />

and mining. They are building systems for ground-based<br />

infrastructure and on-board fuel tanks for zero emission flights.<br />

Fabrum are partners with AIRBUS, AirNZ New Zealand, and<br />

Christchurch Airport in a consortium to adopt hydrogen in aviation.<br />

SPS Automation<br />

A Christchurch-based R&D company specialising in tailored<br />

airborne and ground-based automated robotic systems. Their core<br />

technology is sensor-based artificial intelligence and the design/<br />

integration of the robots that use it. SPS Automation has in-house<br />

rapid prototyping facilities. If it flies, rolls or moves and needs to<br />

think, then they can build it.<br />

Skybase<br />

Since 2017, Skybase has driven local industry growth in uncrewed<br />

aviation technology. With world-first regulatory approvals, they<br />

have upgraded an existing aerial firefighting aeroplane to fly as<br />

an autonomous drone with no pilot on board. This enables flight<br />

at times and in places that would otherwise not be possible.<br />

Orbica<br />

Orbica’s Geospatial Platform has been designed to make data<br />

and tools available to all. Their platform combines the best cloud,<br />

AI & geospatial technologies enabling data practitioners to<br />

interpret the data and provide the vital insights humanity needs<br />

to better understand what is going on with the earth.

One-hundred-and-sixty-six<br />

species were counted in the<br />

reserve.<br />

A large population of Canterbury<br />

ground wētā (Hemiandrus<br />

celaeno) was observed, with the<br />

highest count during a nocturnal<br />

active survey – over 30.<br />

These observations, along with<br />

the discovery of the common<br />

stick insect (Clitarchus hookeri)<br />

and the cave wētā (Isoplectron<br />

armatum) populations may<br />

be indicators of ecosystem<br />

resilience.<br />

It is likely due to the recent<br />

history of land reclamation and<br />

restorative planting that these<br />

species have dispersed into the<br />

reserve in the last 25 years, via<br />

terrestrial movement from local<br />

sites such as Port Hills reserves<br />

and Charlesworth Reserve. If<br />

these are recent dispersal events,<br />

it may indicate natural indigenous<br />

ecosystem restoration.<br />

Recommendations for the<br />

future include increasing<br />

diversity of indigenous plant<br />

species. Many of New Zealand’s<br />

insects are host plant specific<br />

(relying on a specific plant to<br />

complete the insect’s life-cycle),<br />

so increasing diversity of<br />

indigenous plants may increase<br />

insect diversity or would create<br />

stable populations of recorded<br />

insect species.<br />

Secondly, increasing the<br />

quantity of trees and shrubs,<br />

specifically indigenous<br />

vegetation. This will allow more<br />

habitat for current invertebrate<br />

populations.<br />

Thirdly, minimising<br />

disturbance for enhancement<br />

of varied habitat types. Grassy<br />

INSECT: The Canterbury ground wētā was one of 166<br />

species of invertebrates found in McCormacks <strong>Bay</strong> Reserve.<br />

areas are mowed, which may be<br />

limiting diversity as observations<br />

of tall grass areas yielded unique<br />

species not found elsewhere in<br />

the sites. Ceasing the mowing<br />

of at least some edge areas may<br />

provide increased habitat for<br />

these species, allowing a greater<br />

diversity of species to establish in<br />

the reserve.<br />

Wingham was trained between<br />

World War 1 and World War 2 in<br />

a horseback cavalry, the Canterbury<br />

Yeomanry, a mounted rifle<br />

regiment.<br />

Dispatched early in the war,<br />

he fought in North Africa and<br />

Greece. He was taken prisoner<br />

before being freed near the end of<br />

the war.<br />

After the war, he came back<br />

to New Zealand and became a<br />

farmer.<br />

Wingham was awarded five<br />

WW2 service medals.<br />

He passed away about 10 years<br />

ago, so never got to meet Jack.<br />

But Waghorn-Lees said<br />

Jack has always felt a special<br />

connection to his great grandad,<br />

and loves looking at pictures of<br />

him in his uniform, wearing his<br />

Jack was able to share his great<br />

Roundabout plan ‘laudable’ but flawed<br />

Readers respond to the<br />

recent article on planned<br />

changes to the Dyers<br />

Pass Rd/Colombo St<br />

roundabout<br />

Making the Dyers Pass,<br />

Colombo, Cashmere, Centaurus<br />

roundabout safer is a laudable<br />

aim, but the proposed design will<br />

not achieve this. The pedestrian<br />

crossings are too close to the<br />

roundabout and the chances of a<br />

pedestrian being struck are high,<br />

especially on Colombo St.<br />

These crossings are a mere<br />

5m from the roundabout, when<br />

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport<br />

Agency recommends a<br />

minimum distance of 12m to<br />

20m, depending on traffic.<br />

The raised platforms on the<br />

Dyers Pass Rd approach are<br />

inappropriate for the steep<br />

gradient, and an alternative<br />

means of slowing traffic should<br />

be used (rumble strips?).<br />

The turn from Dyers Pass<br />

to Cashmere Rd is too sharp<br />

for many vehicles and will<br />

force drivers either to make a<br />

three-point turn or mount the<br />

pedestrian refuge on Cashmere<br />

Rd.<br />

There is also a question over<br />

whether the overall diameter of<br />

the roundabout is too small for<br />

buses turning from Colombo<br />

St to Cashmere Rd (route 1)<br />

to complete the turn without<br />

mounting the footpath on the<br />

Centaurus/Dyers Pass corner.<br />

In all, there is a good chance that<br />

the changes as proposed will<br />

increase both congestion and<br />

accidents.<br />

A rethink of the design is<br />

required.<br />

– Philip Tree<br />

Governors <strong>Bay</strong><br />

I am sure you will receive a lot<br />

of feedback regarding this article<br />

featured in <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News<br />

on <strong>April</strong> 12. Safety needs to take<br />

priority over cost. The platforms<br />

at the intersections mentioned in<br />

the article are at light-controlled<br />

intersections with more than<br />

one lane, not a busy roundabout.<br />

I believe a light-controlled<br />

intersection is the best and safest<br />

option for all users. As a regular<br />

user of this roundabout for more<br />

than 20 years, I often see traffic<br />

backed up on Dyers Pass waiting<br />

for traffic coming through<br />

Centaurus Rd, or coming off<br />

Colombo St and right-turning<br />

onto Centaurus Rd.<br />

I believe traffic lights would<br />

control this flow more evenly.<br />

I regularly see vehicles “taking<br />

chances” – lights would prevent<br />

these events. Lights would<br />

make it safer for pedestrians<br />

wishing to cross the road as they<br />

would do so on the light signal<br />

– there is no way someone in a<br />

wheelchair can currently safely<br />

cross. Narrowing the roads<br />

approaching the roundabout<br />

will cause congestion as those<br />

vehicles wanting to turn from<br />

Colombo into Centaurus and<br />

Dyers into Centaurus, will need<br />

to stay in the queue with all the<br />

through traffic before being<br />

able to make their turn. I do not<br />

believe traffic lights would not<br />

improve safety and cause more<br />

The city<br />

council need<br />

to listen to<br />

those who regularly use this<br />

roundabout before considering<br />

the decision to ensure the best<br />

outcome for all users.<br />

– Philippa Staples<br />

The Cashmere Rd/Colombo<br />

St roundabout is risky because<br />

it becomes congested. This<br />

proposal to slow traffic is the<br />

wrong thinking process.<br />

The city council needs to<br />

change its current traffic<br />

management policy of<br />

containing traffic onto arterial<br />

would be better reconfigured<br />

for two-way traffic and the<br />

Containing traffic flows leads<br />

to concentrated usage and I<br />

become less risky until traffic<br />

flows are reduced.<br />

TREASURES FROM THE PAST<br />

ANZAC Day commemorations in Ōhinehou Lyttelton, c. 1940. Te Ūaka The Lyttelton Museum ref. 8038.1 https://www.teuaka.org.nz/online-collection/1132339<br />

Honouring our ANZAC troops<br />

AT 3PM on August 5, 1914,<br />

the Governor of His Majesty’s<br />

British Dominion of New<br />

Zealand, Lord Liverpool, stood<br />

on the steps of Parliament to<br />

announce the declaration of war<br />

on the German Empire, to the<br />

enthusiastic cheers of a crowd of<br />

15,000 loyal citizens.<br />

An all-volunteer New Zealand<br />

Expeditionary Force was formed,<br />

with a Māori Contingent of 500<br />

soldiers, including several men<br />

from Rāpaki. By October 1914,<br />

the NZEF main body comprised<br />

8454 soldiers from Canterbury,<br />

Otago, Auckland and Wellington.<br />

They embarked on 10 troop<br />

ships from Wellington, including<br />

the Tahiti and Athenic out of<br />

Lyttelton Port, on October 16,<br />

1914, bound for Suez, Egypt,<br />

arriving on December 3.<br />

Shortly after, the British<br />

Empire declared war on the<br />

Ottoman Empire.<br />

On December 8, 1914 the<br />

Australian and New Zealand<br />

forces united as the Australian<br />

and New Zealand Army Corps<br />

under British senior command.<br />

On <strong>April</strong> 25, 1915, the ANZAC<br />

troops landed on Turkey’s Gallipoli<br />

peninsula, under heavy<br />

fire, at what is now Anzac Cove.<br />

The Dardanelles offensive aimed<br />

to cut off Turkey’s commitment<br />

to the German war effort in<br />

Europe. However, the British and<br />

French forces were ill-equipped<br />

for the modern Turkish Army’s<br />

defences, resulting in heavy<br />

casualties.<br />

The military disaster became<br />

alarmingly apparent back home<br />

as the initial New Zealand Defence<br />

Department casualty lists<br />

were published weekly under the<br />

ominous headline ‘Roll of Honour’,<br />

beginning May 1915. The<br />

growing list of casualties affected<br />

every region and township across<br />

both islands, including communities<br />

from around Whakaraupō<br />

Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>.<br />

To honour just a few:<br />

Sergeant Percy Kent Irvine was<br />

the fifth son of Mr and Mrs Irvine<br />

of Selwyn Tce, Lyttelton. He<br />

was 25 years old when killed in<br />

action at Gallipoli on May 31. He<br />

had been a joiner by trade and<br />

a Corporal in the New Zealand<br />

Garrison Artillery Volunteers,<br />

No. 4 Company, Lyttelton.<br />

Private Waitere Manihera<br />

(Ngāti Wheke, Ngāi Tūāhuriri,<br />

Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Kahukura,<br />

Ngāti Kuhungunu) from<br />

Rāpaki, was serving in the<br />

Māori Contingent, and just 24<br />

years old when he was killed in<br />

action at Gallipoli on August 6.<br />

His 30-year-old uncle, Private<br />

Henare Paipeta, also of Rāpaki,<br />

was fighting alongside Waitere<br />

when he died, and was himself<br />

severely wounded in the same<br />

action at Chunuk Bair.<br />

Their teacher at Rāpaki, Evelyn<br />

Hastings, lost his son Major Norman<br />

Hastings of the Wellington<br />

Mounted Rifles just three days<br />

later in the very same battle. Initially<br />

listed as wounded and then<br />

missing, it took over six months<br />

for his death to be declared.<br />

Nora Hildyard, of Lyttelton,<br />

was lost at sea along with nine<br />

others from the Army Nursing<br />

Service when the troopship Marquette<br />

was sunk by a German<br />

torpedo in the Aegean Sea on<br />

October 23. This loss was keenly<br />

felt across Te Waipounamu<br />

South Island where most of the<br />

nurses came from.<br />

After just three months at<br />

Gallipoli, total New Zealand<br />

casualties had reached 3300<br />

with 760 dead. By December 20<br />

when the ANZACs evacuated<br />

Anzac Cove, the battle for the<br />

Dardanelles had cost 7500 New<br />

Zealand casualties including<br />

2779 dead. While it is said that<br />

Gallipoli was a defining moment<br />

in Aotearoa New Zealand’s<br />

sense of nationhood, its ‘Roll of<br />

Honour’ was just the beginning,<br />

with the list of dead and wounded<br />

growing inexorably through<br />

the next three long years on the<br />

Western Front.<br />

Of the 100,000 NZEF mobilised<br />

overseas – including 2200<br />

Māori, 500 Pacific Islanders, and<br />

550 women of the New Zealand<br />

Army Nursing Service – 18,000<br />

died, including 59 men and one<br />

woman from Whakaraupō Lyttelton<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong>.<br />

Of those who survived, 41,000<br />

were wounded. Private Alex<br />

Miller embarked on February<br />

16, 2017 with the 2nd Canterbury<br />

Battalion. He was severely<br />

wounded in action on August 8,<br />

2017 at La Basse Ville, Belgium,<br />

and lost a leg. Upon discharge,<br />

he ran his grandfather’s Lyttelton<br />

business, J. Miller Boatbuilding<br />

and Shipwrights, and was a keen<br />

yachtsman. He died in 1971 at<br />

75.<br />

It is perhaps hard to fathom<br />

the nation defining shock that<br />

engulfed that generation of New<br />

Zealanders and Australians.<br />

You can see it in the ANZAC<br />

cenotaphs they left behind to<br />

commemorate their dead.<br />

If you’re old enough, you could<br />

see it in the great uncles who survived<br />

the horror of the trenches<br />

and returned home only to die<br />

young of misadventure or suicide;<br />

in the great aunties who never<br />

married or raised a family for lack<br />

of men to marry; and you could<br />

see it in the stoicism of a generation<br />

of those who then endured<br />

the 1918 flu pandemic, followed by<br />

the 1930s Great Depression, only<br />

to be confronted by the nightmare<br />

of yet another war in Europe just<br />

20 years after the end of the ‘war<br />

to end all wars’.<br />
