🎞️WWI Talk with Maree Frewen-Wilks: “Pardon Me” 🗓️ Wednesday 24 April 🕠 5:30 pm

📷 Renowned photojournalist Maree Frewen-Wilks will share the poignant story of WWI soldiers who were executed during the war, including Victor Mason Spencer (Bluff) and Frank Hughes (Invercargill), along with John Sweeney (Wairarapa), John Braithwaite (Christchurch), John King and Frank Needs (West Coast).

Her documentary “Pardon Me” sheds light on the struggles faced by families knowing their loved ones were executed as a questionable example to the rest of the New Zealand forces, allied to the British Army. Their story serves as a reminder of the importance of restored justice.

Following the talk, we will screen the 30-minute documentary and offer the opportunity to engage with the guest speaker.
