Collaboration between NZ Remembrance Army and Veterans' Affairs

Remembrance Army Cleaning

Veterans’ Affairs and the Remembrance Army meet regularly to discuss the maintenance of service graves, to support each other on projects and to explore further opportunities for joint projects.

Veterans’ Affairs is responsible for providing plaques and memorials for the graves of qualifying veterans, and for inspecting and maintaining services cemeteries to a consistent national standard, and can provide commemorative funding for projects, including those identified by the Remembrance Army.

With Veterans’ Affairs’ assistance, the Remembrance Army has installed and unveiled headstones and service plaques for 120 unmarked graves, two new memorials and worked together to recognise East Timor, Peacekeeping operations and Afghanistan deployments on memorials across New Zealand.

If you would like to join the Remembrance Army on one of their restoration projects, check out their Facebook page or send an email.
