For King & Country by Gerry Wright, New Zealand WW1 Naval Casualties

FOR KING & COUNTRY By Gerry Wright.
Paperback, A4 size, 512 pages. Black & white photos and colour illustrations. Published 2015.
The biographies of New Zealand’s Naval WW1 Casualties.

This book tells the story of those who died while serving in New Zealand's naval effort during the First World War. Whilst primarily a record of the stories of those who died, it also gives an insight into the history of Naval Involvement during the conflict.

New Zealand men served in all corners of the World and in all forms of warfare: Submarines, Warships, Aircraft and trenches.

While some did not die in conflict, the casualty list has been guided by the rules of the Imperial War Graves Commission.
