Topic: The New Brighton Boys

Topic type:

These are the stories of those young men with close links to New Brighton who fought and died in the First World War.

Steps leading to NB Memorial Their names have been gathered mainly from the Roll of Honour board at New Brighton School, the Roll of Honour board at St. Enoch's Presbyterian Church, and the New Brighton Surf Bathing and Lifesaving Club memorial window. The stories were displayed at New Brighton, Aranui and Parklands Libraries in 2015.

We think that reading these stories will encourage people of all ages to reflect on and be thankful for those who went to war from New Brighton, and make the soldiers more real, not just statistics.
