Woolston Brass with Music Director Tyme Marsters presents PASSCHENDAELE WW100 commemorating one of New Zealand's darkest days. It has been 100 years since the Battle of Passchendaele (12th of October 1917) when 846 young New Zealanders were killed in Belgium, with many more to die over the coming days from the wounds received on this one day.
