Timaru District Council donates $10,000 towards Le Quesnoy museum
The Timaru District Council will donate $10,000 towards the construction of a New Zealand war memorial museum in Le Quesnoy, France.
The museum will commemorate the contributions New Zealand made in Europe in World Wars I and II.
Le Quesnoy holds an important place in New Zealand WWI history. Just a week before the end of World War I, in November 1918, the New Zealand Division captured the French town - the New Zealanders' last major action in the war.
