Arthur's Pass lodge memorial


The Arthur's Pass lodge was officially opened in 1948. In 1950, a small plaque was added as a memorial, 'In Memorium/ Let us not forget the mountaineers who fell in the 1939-45 World War. May we, who love the mountains, be inspired by the memory of their sacrifice to preserve and protect our alpine heritage.'
