Alberton, the Heritage New Zealand property in Mt Albert, will host a World War I exhibition with a difference as part of the Auckland Heritage Festival.

A Remembrance of World War I runs from September 27 through to October 12 (excluding Mondays and Tuesdays) and will have a specific focus on the impact World War I had on the people of Mt Albert. The exhibition is being run in conjunction with the Mt Albert Historical Society.

As well as being a fitting commemoration of the local response to World War I it is hoped that visitors will be able to provide additional information on the 212 soldiers and nurses from Mt Albert who served in the war. The Mt Albert Historical Society has started compiling a master list of local residents who served in the global conflict - which began a hundred years ago this year - and volunteers are seeking additional information from the public to ensure that the archival material they have is correct for future generations' research and appreciation.

The display will feature a number of World War I artefacts with a local connection, as well as images and stories relating to a number of Mt Albert soldiers. The display will also include material from nurses who had a close association with Mt Albert, and information about local conscientious objectors.

A Remembrance of World War I will run over the school holiday period (Wednesdays through Sundays) from September 27 to October 12. Admission - $8 per adult; accompanied children and Heritage New Zealand members free.
