The Somme: From Tauranga to the Trenches is the latest WW1 exhibition from the Tauranga Heritage Collection. It features maps, quotes, photographs and facts relating to New Zealand’s efforts at the Somme. It also reveals connections Tauranga has to “that terrible battle” through the stories and images of many of the Tauranga men who fought and in some cases died on the Western Front.
The exhibition will open at the Phoenix car park downtown Mount Maunganui on 15 September 2016 - One hundred years to the day New Zealand entered the fray on the Western Front. It will also travel to the Papamoa and Greerton Libraries. Photo: Fiona Kean.
