>All Saints Day reloaded – #606

>

Don’t see many war memorials in Germany.

Growing up in New Zealand, they were simply part of the cultural fabric of the country.

Understandably when you figure that New Zealand lost a larger proportion of its population in conflict than any other combatant nation in the first world war.

They used to say that the angel of death visited every family.

This is the memorial for the 87th Nassauan Regiment’s 3 campaigns (1809-15, 1870-71 and 1914-1918) on the Zitadelle
