This site is still under development  - the aim is to have a small story on all servicemen and women from the wider Porirua District who served on conflicts and peacekeeping roles from the Boer War to Modern Day.
 
The Boer War section has the names of 26 men from what was then the Porirua Riding of the Hutt County. Three of these men paid the ultimate price. The Boer War Section was completed in November 2015.
 
The World War One section includes Tawa, Makara, Porirua, Porirua Hospital, Titahi Bay, Paremata, Plimmerton, Pukerua Bay and Pauatahanui and potentially will have 150+ stories. A list of men and women to be research has been completed and 50 + stories have been loaded as at May 2016.

​The World War Two section which will include Tawa,  Paremata, Pauatahanui, Plimmerton, Porirua and Pukerua Bay potentially will have 200+ stories and to date six stories have been loaded as at May 2016.
