Awatuna War Memorial 

Awatuna War Memorial 

 

 Monument to the men of Awatuna who lost their lives in the Great War.

Also included on the monument is Corp. James Robert Gatenby who was killed in Vietnam - 5 June 1969. 

 

There appear to have been no locals killed during WW II as the Awatuna School Centennial booklet does not include any nor have any names been added to the memorial.

Awatuna School is now closed.
