Memorial in Waipukurau

Uncle James Preacher lived in the small, quiet town of Waipukurau in the Hawkes Bay. He went off to war leaving Mabel, his young wife, and their baby daughter behind, never to return. Sadly, he only lasted a few short days at the front line before he was killed. 

There is a lovely war memorial at the edge of the town to remember the local soldiers who died in World War 1 and 2. James' name is engraved on it.
