yesterday, are (from left) David Ellison, Fred Daniel and
The service was attended by several hundred people, and
included a flyover by a replica Hawker Hurricane to mark the
Allies signing an armistice with Germany, ending hostilities
on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918.
A cannon was also fired to commemorate Armistice Day.
Speaker Commodore John Martin also acknowledged the six
soldiers killed in Afghanistan in the past year.
The flyover by the Hurricane replaced the planned aerial
visit by a World War 2 P51 Mustang, because of wind
conditions in Wanaka.
