Lest we forget

remembering the past, originally uploaded by - di.

On August 1, 1917 Charles Rangiwawahia Sciascia died on a battlefield here in Belgium.

Ninety years later, his extended family from New Zealand came to pay their respects in a moving ceremony in Warneton - close to the place where he died during the battle at La Basseville.

The man pictured is the man who carries the memory of Charles in his name which has been and will continue to be passed through the generations so he is never forgotten.

It was an incredible day.
