Eltham War Memorial                         

 Designed by local cabinetmaker, Oscar Manley (Taylor, Don:  Vignettes, 2008, p47) although some authorities credit the gates to theTaranaki Education Board architect, C H Moore.

The gates were unveiled on Armistice Day (11 November) 1926 by the Minister of Agriculture, O J Hawkin and the Eltham Mayor, I J Bridger.

The WWII additions were unveiled on Anzac Day, 1954 by Egmont MP E B Corbett and the Mayor, F J Taylor.
