Off To War @ 1940

2000 of our Canterbury lads march down what is now Cashel Mall on 4th January 1940 on their way to war.

Looming behind them is the Bridge of Remembrance, that honours the fallen from World War I.

There is no way those young men could pass by that and not think about dying in the so called glory of battle!
