World War 1
World War 1 began on July the 28th, 1914 and ended on November 1918. Over 100,000 people volunteered to be in the War. By the end of the WW1 millions of mens died in the War for New Zealand. Pigeons and Dogs were used in the war to send messages around the country.
Between 1914 and 1918 more than 15 million women lost their lives. Making it one of the deadliest wars in all the human history. Thousands of countries were fighting against each other in the WW1.
Mr Burt and Mrs Flavell's grandparents were in the World War 1. When the WW1 had finished Mrs Flavelles Grandpa returned un wounded but Mr Burts Grandpa returned wounded in his lungs and leg. The war was like a thousand kids fighting over a popular teddy bear.
To remember the soldiers that died for us we wear a red poppy. The soldiers that died were awarded the Victoria Cross. New Zealand fought for the British Empire and were apart of the Commonwealth.
