The First World War brought a close association with New Zealand.
Altogether 27,000 New Zealanders were nursed during that period at Mount Felix, which had been taken over as a hospital.

Their memory is also honoured at the
annual Civic Service on Anzac Day in the presence of the New Zealand High Commissioner

There are 27 Commonwealth burials of the 1914-1918 war and 3 of the 1939-1945 war here.
There are a further 2 commemorations to New Zealand soldiers who were patients at the N.Z. Hospital and whose graves are not known. (McDiarmid and Ward).

All the New Zealanders are commemorated
on a Screen Wall Memorial near their two plots, at the North entrance. # of Identified Casualties: 32

The Trinity Red Cross Guild's annual report of 1918 mentions that an autograph quilt and four pounds were sent to Walton-on-Thames hospital in 1917-18.
It was an unfinished calico quilt top with hand embroidered messages called the
FRIENDSHIP QUILT
