From the uttermost parts

Driving through Eketahuna today really brought home the fact that many of New Zealand's World War 1 soldiers came from 'the uttermost parts' of the country. 

Uncle John W Cobb was working in the tiny town of Eketahuna when he signed up for the war in 1914. It must have been a more vibrant town than it is today judging by the names on the roll of honour at the local war memorial.
