Hi Richard, thanks for this. Though I think you'll find it was 1916, not 1919? Here is his service record: http://muse.aucklandmuseum.com/databases/Cenotaph/14948.detail? We'd definitely be interested in see the postcard - if you wanted to get it scanned and send it to info@nzhistory.net.nz we can add it to this page. Regards, Jamie Mackay

I am directly related to Richard Stent (last name on the memorial) who died in 1919 aged 19 years (Somme, France). My parents told me I was named after this person - obviously we never met. I have an old postcard from 1922 from before there was no memorial hall.

The Ohingaiti Memorial Hall pictured to the right in the photo obviously getting a new coat of paint has a special room where all the soldiers from the District have their photos on the walls. We used to be able to stand beneath the photos and pick out all the those that were among us. Sadly that is no longer possible so when we have a function we like that they are well remembered and those with their names on the Cenotaph as well.
