As part of this year’s ANZAC Day commemorations, in the week prior, the names of Hastings residents who lost their lives in World Wars 1 and 2 were featured along with poppies on the outside walls of the Memorial Library, as part of a near 18-metre tall light projection.
RSA Hastings president David Holmes believed it was the first time such an outdoor art work had been developed to honour fallen soldiers.
“It was a beautiful way to honour those soldiers who died in battle and helped shape the wonderful country we live in today, and a fitting monument for our children and grandchildren, to help us preserve their memories and honour them.”
