Memorial at Petone railway station

On the first anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, 25 April 1916, a commemorative flagpole made from kauri and Australian hardwood – symbolising ‘the unity of Australian and New Zealand railwaymen in peace and war’ – was unveiled outside the Petone railway station and workshop. By this time it was said that up to 2000 New Zealand Railways employees had enlisted and at least 37 had lost their lives.
