Apart from the Falkland Island Monument, the most southern War Memorial in the world, it is on Halfmoon Bay on Stewart Island, the third, most southern island of New Zealand. Pop. about 340.

It consists of a Monument, with the arms of Halfmoon Bay in the background. There are three Plaques, the Plaque with words from the ode is facing the road, the WW1 plaque is to the left when facing the sea and the WW2 Plaque to the right.

John Robertson, who lost his life in WW1, was the Great Uncle of Elaine Hamilton, the curator of the Stewart Island Museum who so kindly took these photos and sent them on to me.
