The Royal New Zealand Navy


[The origins of the present New Zealand Navy are related in the text. There was an earlier New Zealand Navy which flourished and was actively engaged from 1846 until the end of the Maori Wars, when it disappeared, almost without trace. I am indebted to Mr F. H. McCluskey, of Wellington, who referred me to the paper by Mr Herbert Baillie on The First New Zealand Navy, printed in Volume 53 of the Transactions and Proceedings of the New Zealand Institute in 1921 and, with the permission of the Royal Society of New Zealand, reproduced as Appendix I. Mr McCluskey has also supplied the account of the training ship Amokura, printed as Appendix IXEditor-in-Chief.]
