Lance Corporal W.M. WILSON - Country Paddock - South Island

A surprise find whilst driving along - erected on a privately owned piece of land on the south island, New Zealand.  Situated in a sheep paddock on the south side of Highway 83 between Waikaura and Duntroon, this small memorial cross is a poignant reminder of the men who came off the land and the small rural farms to answer the call during the 1914-1918 War.  Clearly a personal commemoration of a family member, Lance Corporal W.M. WILSON of the New Zealand Expeditionary Force who enlisted from this area and sadly, died during the last year of the war.  Medals Gone Missing would like to hear from any person who can supply more information in regards to the identity of L/Cpl W.M. WILSON and his tragic fate.  No doubt, he was dearly missed from this lonely corner of the world in the years following 1918.

Omaru - South Island

The War Memorial at the northern end of the main street in Omaru (South Island) in New Zealand.  This effigy at the top of the memorial depicts a 'Colonial' soldier who is armed with a Magazine Lee Enfield (colloquially called the 'Long Lee-Enfield').  At the base of the memorial rests the Lion, which represents Great Britain and clearly demonstrates New Zealand's loyalty to the Commonwealth.

Omaru - South Island

The War Memorial at the southern end of the main street, Omaru on the south island of New Zealand.  This end (there are two war memorials in this street) depicts an infantryman of the N.Z.E.F. (New Zealand Expeditionary Force) in full combat order.
