Ruakura roll of honour board

The Ruakura Agricultural Research Station roll of honour, unveiled after the Second World War, lists the names of 40 members of the staff who served during the war, including three who were killed and five who were wounded. Some years after the war, the roll of honour was placed in storage. It was rediscovered in August 2008, was subsequently restored, and was rededicated on 24 April 2009. It is now on display in the McMeekan Centre.
