OLPHERT: Last Post Ceremony National War Memorial.
HMNZS OLPHERT personnel take their turn to perform the Ode and Last Post ceremony at the National War Memorial, Wellington.
The Navy is lead Service for October and OLPHERT has committed to do the ceremony every Tuesday during October. The ceremony occurs every night at 5pm.
So if you're in Wellington head down to the War Memorial one evening to remember those New Zealanders who served our nation.
