Camera and Bayonet feature in Passchendaele Exhibition
Our new Passchendaele Exhibition, Passchendaele – New Zealand’s Darkest Day, has been in the news again. Both the Cook Strait News and Independent Herald ran stories about Jack Gradwell loaning his great-grandfather’s bayonet and camera to the Passchendaele exhibition.
Despite multiple injuries and being gassed, Jacks great-grandfather, Captain George Gradwell, survived the horrors of Passchendaele, along with his camera and bayonet.
Passchendaele – New Zealand’s Darkest Day runs until December 2018 at The Great War Exhibition.
