“Good bye for the present and please remember me to the others…”
62 letters and telegrams containing a unique and candid insight into life on the front line in France and Gallipoli for the officers and men from Whanganui in the 7th (Wellington-West Coast) Company of the Wellington Infantry Battalion.

As part of the Wanganui community’s commemoration of the one hundredth anniversary of World War One, the letters will be released on the Ngā Ripo o Mua, Ripples of the Past database on the one hundredth anniversary of their creation.
