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. On parade  is the RNZAMC Banner.   Banners are presented to units or corps by Royal or Vice-Regal personages. The RNZAMC Banner was presented by the Colonel-in-Chief, Royal New Zealand Army Medical Corps, His Royal Highness, the Duke of Gloucester, Prince Richard, KG, GCVO.  It is known as The Prince Richard Banner.  The Prince Richard Banner was received into the RNZAMC and consecrated on the 20 May 2010 at Linton Camp, Palmerston North.
