These gates stood outside Grey Main Primary School,
Greymouth, New Zealand. (My old primary school).
They are a memorial to the men who served in the
two world wars who had attended the school.
Even after the school was demolished they stood proudly
outside the school grounds of what was a training institution
of some sort until they disappeared one night in rather mysterious circumstances (in 2010, I believe). It transpired that some men had decided they were serving no good purpose and took it on themselves to dispose of them. Of course when the community discovered them missing the following morning there was a huge hue and cry and they were later recovered from the bush where they had been unceremoniously dumped. They were duly rescued and reinstated in the community, not at the original school site but at the main entrance to Dixon Park, a lovely childrens playground and gathering place for the community. There was some damage done but, as luck would have it, not a lot. I have to say I love to see them where they are now, standing proud once more.
