WW1 exhibition

GallipoliCoverB

Today saw the opening of this exhibition — attended by VIPs including the Governor General — which covers NZ’s naval and merchant marine ships during the First World War of a century ago. It features several maritime paintings by Otaki artist Wallace Trickett, one of which was on the cover of the book Voyage to Gallipoli which we co-published with Rosenberg of Australia, a small quantity of which is still available.

The exhibition is at the Otaki Museum and runs until July.
