The Sounds Soldiers’ Memorial: Stories of the Fallen
Paperback | English
In the Kenepuru Sound, in New Zealand’s picturesque Marlborough Sounds, stands the Sounds Soldiers’ Memorial. This iconic memorial, located in the Torea Saddle, commemorates the Sounds’ soldiers, sailor and airman who died in World War One and World War Two.
The Sound Soldiers’ Memorial: Stories of the Fallen gives an overview of New Zealand’s involvement in the two World Wars and provides an insight into the background of the Memorial’s construction. It tells the stories of the twenty-nine men commemorated, including personal details, military service and medals awarded, as well as newspaper articles, personal letters and photographs.
The loss of these men from this small community, and their brave sacrifice, will not be forgotten – “We will remember them.”
