Name / Title Battle honours board
Battle honours board made to mark HMS New Zealand’s participation at the Battle of Jutland in May 1916. Likely to have been made by the Royal Navy dockyard, UK (or possibly on board ship) following the Battle of Jutland, it was mounted on the ship’s super structure during its naval service and removed when the ship was broken up in 1922. Presumably amongst the various objects which were sent back to New Zealand after the ship was scrapped, it eventually came to be in the possession of the RNZN.
