This infamous battle of the First World War saw New Zealand troops including some from the Waimakariri District – fight and die alongside their British, Australian and Canadian counterparts. The 100-day battle on the western front was the biggest tragedy in New Zealand military history. On the
first day of the attack, 846 New Zealanders lost their lives, more than any other single event in our post-1840 history.
Waimakariri has a special link to the battle, being twinned with the Belgian municipality of Zonnebeke, which includes the Passchendaele battlefield. Our Mayor David Ayers and other Council representatives are currently representing our district in a commemoration service in Zonnebeke.
