Comments: As a nation New Zealand has always been bound to the sea.
From our earliest beginnings the sea has brought to us our peoples, our food and out wealth, and we have sought to protect out shores and those of our allies through out knowledge and skills as a seafaring people.
This is the story of the New Zealand Navy, of the courageous men and women who have helped build our country with their service form the sea.
Form a ditty bow to an artillery pouch; from ships’ cats to weapons and medials, this story is told through the collections of the Royal New Zealand Navy Museum.
The fascinating personal mementoes and artefacts from New Zealand’s naval history tell of courage, sacrifice and friendship and, above all, of the dedication of those who serve.
