The bridge of Remebrance is just that, a momument to all soldiers who went to war in the various theatres of war last centuary. This includes both World Wars won by the British with the help of our little island nation and our close neighbours, Australia.
No matter what goes on in our world, the stupidity of some nations continues to confound logic and we end up with this sort of monument. A nice piece of architecture but for all the wrong reasons.
25 April is ANZAC day in both New Zealand and Australia and it allows us all to remember the committment of soldiers sent "over the top" by the British as shock troops, many never to return home. Lest we forget!!
Fondest memory: The Bridge of Remembrance spans the placid waters of the Avon River, linking Oxford and Cambridge Terraces. This bridge is a monument to the fallen soldiers of New Zealand. At night the arch is lit. The bridge is a lovely sight on any stroll along the Avon's banks.
Favorite thing: Stone bridge spanning the Avon River with a large ornate archway spanning the east end of the bridge. It is a War Memorial erected by the citizens of Christchurch, initially for the sacrifice made during the 1914-1918 Great War, in 1923.
