New Zealand Memorials in West Flanders
After WWI, the New Zealand Government decided that missing soldiers should be commemorated in the cemeteries near where they were lost. This is the reason why the names of New Zealanders do not appear on the Menin Gate in Ieper (although some 86 New Zealanders serving with other forces have their names inscribed there).
The names of New Zealanders appear on memorials at Tyne Cot Cemetery, Buttes New British Cemetery, Polygon Wood, Zonnebeke and Messines Ridge British Cemetery.
