Rededication Ceremony Honours World War One and Two Public Trust Servicemen

The names of the servicemen are recorded on the two plaques which feature in the foyer of the iconic Lambton Quay Public Trust building where the honours boards were originally installed. Both plaques were removed when Public Trust moved out of the building in 1982 and have been reinstated after they were located in the current Wellington Public Trust premises as the result of a research project.
