Netherton roll of honour

The Netherton public hall was opened in 1910. The Netherton roll of honour, unveiled in the hall in early April 1918, listed the names of 32 men who had served overseas, two of whom had died. A roll of honour published in the school history lists in addition one man who served in the South African War (W.J.D. Moore) and 56 men who served in the Second World War.

F W WYATT was my Grandfather, he was living in Auckland and a Fireman at the Auckland Central Station when he was called up in 1917 to join the New Zealand Tunneling Company. He was aged 37 with 3 children. He and the Company joined up under ground quarries dug during the middle ages with tunnels to house tens of thousands of British troops then broke through right in front of the German trenches. The troops poured out and overran the Germans. Thus began the end of WORLD WAR I.
