Perpetuate the story and achievements of the 2nd New Zealand Divisional Cavalry.
Honour all those who served, those who were wounded, and those who were lost on active service.
Provide a focal point for family members, friends and the world at large to learn about the DivCav, understand the role of the regiment, and appreciate the contributions made by parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, relatives, and members of their extended families.
Create a 'living' record of every individual who served in the DivCav so the world will know who they were, how and where they served, and what they achieved for freedom.
Collate images, records, maps, graphics, relics, artifacts and the geography of the DivCav so that all of us can share the regiment's rich contextual history.
Celebrate the memory and achievements of the DivCav and all who served,
whenever and wherever New Zealand servicemen and women are remembered.
