The Johnnies and the Mehmets

This is a memorial to the Auckland Regiment, on the edge of the cricket playing area in the middle of the Auckland Domain. 

On the back of the memorial, with Auckland Hospital in the background, there’s a lovely quote from Ataturk about how all the dead boys buried at Gallipoli are the same, whether Johnny or Mehmet.
