First 2012 Grants

Monday, March 5, 2012

The New Zealand War Graves Trust acknowledges gratefully the recent donations of $22,000 from the Trusts Community Foundation and $18,000 from the Four Winds Foundation. This money goes towards the contracted purchase of photographs in Belgium from the Tyne Cot Cemetery and Tyne Cot Memorial and from the Messines Ridge (New Zealand) Memorial and Messines Ridge British Cemetery respectively. This will be a major contribution towards photographing the 5038 New Zealand casualties commemorated in Belgium, largely from World War I.
