Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 9. 1965.
Auckland University students are considering a memorial to two students killed while taking part in a safety campaign.
The students were Annette Oakley and John Coombes, both of O'Rorke Hall, Auckland.
They were taking part with 33 others in a 50-mile safety walk from Maramarua, near Thames, to Auckland.
Most students wore white lab coats, and all were walking on the right-hand side of the road and wearing arm bands with reflectorised tape.
The accident occurred on the outskirts of Papakura. The two students were walking on the right-hand side of the road— there was no footpath—when they were struck from behind by a car.
