The Whangamomona, Kohuratahi and Tahora War Memorial Cenotaph at Kohuratahi - North Taranaki

War Memorial at Kohuratahi
The War Memorial at Kohuratahi was unveiled on Anzac Day, 25th April 1922; organized by Albert Perry and erected by the residents of Whangamomona, Kohuratahi, and Tahora Districts to the memory of their soldiers who made the Supreme Sacrifice, in the Great War of 1914 -1918. Special Public Works trains brought over three hundred people from Whangamomona and Tahora to Kohuratahi, where the newly erected memorial, an obelisk of grey granite enclosed in a square of concrete posts and iron railings, stood alongside the railway station gates.
