The Third Battle of Ypres, Passchendaele, began on 31 July 1917 and continued until November 1917.  After three months of fierce fighting the village was finally taken by the Canadian forces, but the Allies suffered around 300,000 casualties, and the Germans almost a quarter of a million.

A rich site  - men, equipment, memorials, interactive maps, computer coloured photographs and many tit bits -  all to bring the history of the NZMR to family audiences. Also has diaries, photographs and an email forum where members share their research and help with links to other research.

Anzac Day in New Zealand is held on 25 April each year to commemorate New Zealanders killed in war and to honour returned servicemen and women. The day has similar importance in Australia, New Zealand's partner in the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps at Gallipoli. The ceremony itself has been continually adapted to the times, but has also steadily acquired extra layers of symbolism and meaning.

The Western Front Association was formed with the aim of furthering interest in the period 1914-1918, to perpetuate the memory, courage and comradeship of all those who served their countries in France and Flanders and their own countries during The Great War.

Founded in 1916 as the Returned Soldiers’ Association. Now a major welfare and community support organisation. The website includes a database, Last Post, of deceased members from June 2000.
