On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the National Commemoration of Armistice Day was held to remember the signing of the Armistice Agreement 105 years ago, which ended four years of conflict in the First World War.
Dame Cindy and Dr Davies attended the commemoration at Pukeahu National War Memorial Park, joining Government and Defence representatives, members of the Diplomatic Corps, and Taranaki Whānui.
In her speech, Dame Cindy noted “On this Armistice Day, as we remember the end of the First World War, let us firm our resolve, wherever we can, to support and to strive for peace, community, and all that is good in life – as proud New Zealanders and members of the global community”.
