Wellington, New Zealand
18 October 2012
The National War Memorial was built in the 1930s and in the 1960s to remember the New Zealanders who served and died during the South African War, the World War I and II, and the conflicts in Korea, Malaysia and Vietnam. It houses the Hall of Memories, the Carillon tower and the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior.
After the visits at the Government House and Parliament complex, President Aquino will pay tribute to the New Zealander heroes through a wreath-laying ceremony. He will also place a red rose at the tomb of the Unknown Warrior whose remains were unidentified when he died in a war between 1916 and 1918.
