Thames (NZ): Boys from 6th Hauraki WWI 1914

With the commemorations for World War One starting in 1914, it is timely to ask whether anyone has any family who served and were from the Thames area.
The Treasury has a webpage with details of those who died and served. At the Treasury in Thames, an on-going project aims to gather further names and resources.

Have you any memorabilia, photos, letters, diaries that could help tell us more about the men and women who served in World War One. If your answer is yes, contact me (email to right) or contact the Treasury direct via the contact page.
