NZ Veterans Band Pilgrimage

Today was the start of the pilgrimage for the members of the band to places where members of the family are buried. A very moving morning for all of us. With the Last Post in France and in Flanders. We did Armentieres, Messines, Ploegsteert (Underhill Farm), Warneton/Waasten and to end the Pool of Peace.
In the afternoon it was time for a rehearsal.
