Wellington Memorial To Fallen Soldiers
Wellington Memorial To Fallen Soldiers.
The proposal that Government Departments in Wellington should provide one of the Carillon bells deserves the support of all members of the Railway Department employed in and around the Capital City. The choice of memorial is a particularly apt one. It will serve for all time as a recurring harmonious reminder of those who fell and whose memory it is intended to keep sacred.
The suggested contribution of 1s. by members in receipt of less than £295 per annum and 2s. by those receiving over that amount makes it possible for the whole staff to subscribe, and in honour of that noble army of New Zealand Railwaymen who gave their lives for their country we feel sure that everyone will respond to the call.
