All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

In 2010 the New Zealand Government announced that they would join Britain and other commonwealth countries to commemorate those who served in the Merchant Navy in the Second World War.

The date chosen was 3rd September as this observes the sinking of the first British merchant ship in 1939, just hours after the war was declared.

The service will be held by Chaplain Bill Law and will take approximately one hour, which includes the laying of a wreath at Voyager’s Merchant Navy Memorial Plaque.

Following the service, there will be tea and coffee available. Our knowledgeable Guides will be available in the Oceans Apart gallery to discuss Merchant Navy related objects and stories.

Location - Maritime Room, Voyager NZ Maritime Museum.
