Bravery and courage were the focus for an innovative, collaborative exhibition at the National Museum of the Royal New Zealand Navy. Kids Create – Bravery showcased works by over 100 year three and four, Takapuna Primary school children.
This exhibition told of the only time in World War One where the battle fleets of the two largest navies in the world met.
“On the morning after the battle”, my father said, “sailors they left their battle posts to breathe, and found items they would keep as souvenirs of that day of fire and steel. Steel is what they collected, pieces of shrapnel with strange appearance, that had left traces of the impacts of the artillery.”
