Erected in 2006, this memorial commemorates the bonds between the UK and New Zealand and the shared sacrifices made during wars.
 
Sixteen cross-sectioned bronze standards slant out of the grassy slope, all pointing south. The shape of the cross is reminiscent of the Southern Cross star constellation. Lit by a white light, they glow in the dusk.
 
Each standard is different and decorated with symbols of New Zealand – the Southern Cross stars, the hull of a great Maori canoe and fish hooks, a quote from Katherine Mansfield, and another dedicated to the All Blacks rugby team.
