Under the kind but relentless training of Major Breen of Rotorua District Cadet Unit, our Non Commissioned Officers received catafalque refresher training in preparation for Rotorua’s Armistice Day commemorations.

Cadets from RDCU and 29 Squadron will join the Returned Services Association, Rotorua Lakes City Council, and Te Arawa Returned Services League at Government Gardens to commemorate Armistice Day.

With Anzac Day and Battle of Britain commemorations changed by Covid-19, this is Rotorua’s first opportunity to come together as a community to commemorate those who gave so much for our Freedom.  The public are invited to join us at the Cenotaph in Government Gardens. Please be there at 10:30 am to be in place in time for the 10:40 start.

Ka maumahara tonu tātau ki a rātau. We will remember them.
