Limehills war memorial.

Further information from Vince Boyle: 

Limehills memorial was restored by local folk about 2002. It was masked by a hedge but that was removed to reveal the simple column surrounded by concrete steps.

The names inscribed appear to be listed in the order they enlisted and include two men who were killed. The memorial was unveiled on 20 December  1916 which must make it one of the earliest such monuments in Southland/New Zealand. It can now be seen from SH6 8km north of Winton.
