"sunt lacrimae rerum et mentem mortalia tangunt"

"these are the tears of things, and our mortality cuts to the heart" - Vergil: the Aeneid

Relics of Monte Cassino bought back by Kiwi soldiers after the 1944 battle. On display at the Army Museum, Waiouru, New Zealand; Rosary beads and crucifix, broken monogrammed plate; mosaic tiles and partial carving (frieze?).

This is a MUST SEE museum for international visitors and Kiwis alike. http://www.armymuseum.co.nz/
