Although many Kiwis visit Gallipoli for Anzac Day, we're off to France. An old school friend of Paul's who I know independently through law links in Auckland (and my friend Leona is independently related to...) has very kindly organised for a small troop of 38 Kiwis to go the north of France to a small town called Le Quesnoy, which was liberated by the Kiwis in 1918, by hand.
As I should be packing my bag, (determined to get my sleeping bag, towel, camera and everything else I need into a very small suitcase), I'll leave you with some pre-reading.
This site has an excellent 7-page write-up of NZ's involvement with Le Quesnoy:
