Le Quesnoy New Zealand Memorial, France
On Sunday 22nd April 2018 at 11.00h a New Zealand Service was held at the New Zealand Memorial.
Organised by the New Zealand Defence Force in conjunction with the New Zealand Embassy.
The Battle of Le Quesnoy in northern France on 4 November 1918 was one of New Zealand’s most important victories, but also the last. A few days after the liberation of the town, the Armistice ending the First World War was signed in Compiegne, France. The liberation of Le Quesnoy is still anchored in the memory of New Zealanders and the people of the town.
