A battle was organized to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I on the Karapiro Lake.
And after a while – November 11 11 hours, for 100 years – a fierce chorus of cheers.
"The eleventh hour of 11 months is very important," said Paul Watkins, chairman of the Cambridge Armistice Commission. "When France and Germany reached understanding in 1918 after the armistice agreement was reached, all hostility should end."
"It's not a celebration, but people around the world, the four-and-a-half-year war, is over. A lively chorus It was making as much noise as possible, gathering people, horns and making as much noise as people could. "
Today's celebration is a weekend event where more than a hundred army vehicles and soldiers are camping on the scene. Among them, Greg Thomas from Cambridge participated in the former replica jersey.
"Yesterday at the Battle of Kiku Noi, I showed New Zealanders how to get a Kiwi person to climb a wall and free the village to capture a German captive," Thomas said.
"They may or may not read a book with a tearful book, but if they see it here, in fact, we will understand more of New Zealand history and celebrate more."
The incident remembers not only what happened on the pages of history books, but also the spirit of war. An important way to keep that memory alive.
