Publisher: GP Books, Wellington , 1989

Naval ships that served with the NZ Division of the RN and the Royal New Zealand Navy from just prior to WWI to the late 1980's are covered in this comprehensive publication. However, NZ's connection with the RN began much earlier than the era of the Division --- back to Captain Cook's explorations of the 1700s, the influence of the settlement of Australia and during the land wars of the mid-1800s. These are touched on in the introductory text, followed by the NZ Division, including WWI and the early days of WWII. and then the RNZN. It was not until late 1941 that the RNZN was officially formed, although through WWII many NZ'ers served on RN ships. That conflict is covered in detail, as are the major changes that followed the end of hostilities and subsequent developments to fleet and commitments. This chronological fleet list is attractively presented in folio format, with b/w photos throughout, technical data and specifications, service histories, beginning with cruisers and descending to patrol, requisitioned and auxillary ships, class tables where applicable plus base info. .A valuable reference for the naval enthusiast. First edition by GP Books from 1989, 186 pages including two appendices, footnotes, bibliography and index, numerous b/w photos.
