The much-anticipated Re- turned Services Memorial at Manukau Memorial Gardens in Papatoetoe has been officially unveiled. Auckland mayor Len Brown and South Auckland RSA Cemeteries Trust spokesman Colin Topp did the honours in front of a large crowd that included army, navy and air force represen- tatives as well as current and former local body politicians. The $700,000 memorial is an extension of the cemetery s returned services section and was completed earlier this year. But it was a long slog for those behind the project. The idea for the memorial was first conceived in the early 1980s by returned servicemen from throughout Counties Manukau. Some went on to form the dedicated cemetery trust that worked hard to turn the idea into reality. Mr Topp served in the New Zealand Navy during World War Two, and says all good things come to those who wait. Nothing could be more accurate in relation to this memorial. This is a dream come true. The memorial will provide a permanent reminder of those who sacrificed and endured so much hardship to preserve our freedom and way of life. The memorial was designed by landscape architects Chow:Hill which won a bronze award at this year s New Zealand Institute of Landscaping Architecture Pride of Place Awards for its work. The design provides three areas within the memorial for commemoration, remem- brance and education. Gatherings will take place in the commemoration space, an open paved area edged by columnar trees and focused on a flagpole. Four sculpted granite panels with statues depicting the three military branches and the nursing corps enclose the remembrance space. And in the education area four large granite panels fea- ture text and imagery that tell real stories of Kiwi servicemen and women. Mr Topp said: A lot of thought has gone into this memorial and I want to thank everyone involved. Funding came from the Manukau City Council, Manurewa and Papatoetoe community boards, Manu- rewa and Papatoetoe RSAs, RSA women s sections, Vet- eran Affairs New Zealand and the ASB Trust.
