Margaret plans to entrust the dairy and artefacts to the Hocken Library in Dunedin, so that they can be preserved and accessed by future generations. She hopes that other people will look in their own attics and that of their relatives and see if they also hold valuable accounts of the war. With the number of returned WW2 servicemen greatly reducing each year, it is essential that this information is found and cared for.
