Passchendaele 1917: the New Zealand / Waimakariri Connection

On Wednesday 10 September, a display of prints done by modern Belgian art students, presented to the Waimakariri District last year, will go on display in the Chamber Gallery in the Rangiora Library.  The theme of the exhibition is the Battle of Passchendaele fought in Flanders, Belgium in 1917 during World War I.

No battle in New Zealand history cost more lives than this one. If you want to find out more, I suggest the following site to start off with: http://www.nzhistory.net.nz/war/passchendaele-the-battle-for-belgium .
