Prime Minister of New Zealand the Honourable John Key will attend the Passchendaele March Past and Review
We have just heard that the Prime Minister of New Zealand the Honourable John Key will attend the Passchendaele March Past and Review on Saturday 10 October 2009.
He will be accompanied by his Chief Press Secretary Kevin Taylor as well as a Police Contingent.
He will speak at the Review Ceremony and lay a wreath in commemoration of the lives lost at Passchendaele and in Flanders.
It's a great honour for us and we are very grateful that New Zealand is commemorating the day "the spirit of the New Zealand Division has been broken", 12 October 1917. A black day in the young history of a great Nation.
