If you are stuck for a Fathers Day idea Anzac, photographs by Laurence Aberhart would be a great gift.

In almost every New Zealand or Australian town you will find a memorial to those killed in the Great War of 1914–1918.

These memorials were commissioned and built in the years shortly after the conflict, by communities, families and comrades who returned from battle, eager not to forget their dead, or their sacrifice. 

Many of these men never got the oppurtunity to be a Father and were mourned by their own Fathers. 

It is a beautiful book and a great way to own a little piece of work from one of our greatest New Zealand photographers. 

Unity Books have it and you can buy it online from Victoria University Press.
