Kohatu war memorial, before it was moved (top image) and after.

Noel Woolf tells us that 'the memorial gate and the wrought iron work was given in memory of Capt W.O. Berryman, M.C. Military Cross - the first to be given to a NZ soldier. Capt Berryman died on coming back to NZ from America in 1921 (too late to be added to the memorial). If you look at the photo of the memorial before it was shifted you will see plaques attached to the gate, unfortunately someone removed them and so far we have been unsuccessful in tracking them down.'
