More Info →Awapuni Memorial Rededication

The Awapuni Memorial at the Palmerston North Racecourse was rededicated after its refurbishment, on 20 October 2016. The memorial was originally erected at the Race course in 1929, to commemorate the New Zealand Medical Corps, who trained there ahead of deployment in World War One. After falling into disrepair a project to restore it began in 2014, at a cost of $200,000. The Royal New Zealand Army Medical Corps established the project team, with Palmerston North City Council and Awapuni Racing Centre. This photograph shows the original inscription, 'In Proud Memory of the Officers and Men of the New Zealand Medical Corps who were trained on these grounds 1914-1918 and who sacrificed their lives to the Empire'.
