World war remembered On parade: Veterans and service members pay tribute on Armistice Day at the Helensville Memorial Hall. Photo: CHERIE McALLISTER A large group of veterans marked the 93rd anniversary of Armistice Day in Helens- ville. The Kaipara Memorial RSA hosted a parade at the Helensville Memorial Hall to the minute the Armistice was signed to signal the end of World War One. Veterans and their families with members of the com- munity supported by the Royal New Zealand Air Force walked down the main street. Mark Harris, Auckland District RSA pensions and welfare adviser, says the RSA is grateful to the air force for attending. RSA president Steve Wil- son called the parade to attention and marked the first part of the ceremony with a two-minute silence. He welcomed the crowd to the parade and recalled the efforts of the veterans in past conflicts and paid tribute to World War Two veteran Don Cooper of Shelly Beach who died the previous day. Following the welcome, the Last Post sounded out as flag bearers representing the army, navy, air force and ter- ritorial force lowered their flags and the New Zealand flag was lowered to half- mast. Former Kings Empire Veterans president Reg Canty, a Korean War vet- eran, recited the Ode. A lament by piper Bruce McGeechan was played and Reveille was sounded as the flag was raised once again to the top of the mast. Among the veterans were those from World War Two Peter Dormer, George Ander- son, Arthur Colville, Sam Sanson and Denis Pizzey Those from the Korean War were Reg Canty and Frank Bowater. Also present was Vietnam veteran Denis Palmer with Operation Grapple veteran Lawrence Coker. After the parade the crowd was rewarded with a roast meal prepared by Pop's Tucker Box, caterers to the RSA. Armistice Day ceremonies were also held at Waimauku School with the district's RSA, defence forces and community representatives attending.
