Navy formation entry into harbour part of celebrations

Navy formation entry into harbour part of 75th Anniversary celebrations

As part of the Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN) 75th Anniversary celebrations, a formation entry into Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour will be held at midday on Monday 8 February, 2016.

The formation entry will include a 17-gun salute from HMNZS Canterbury as she passes Devonport Naval Base at midday, and this will be reciprocated with an 11-gun salute fired from HMNZS Te Mana, berthed at Devonport Naval Base.

The gun salute is part of the 75th celebrations that are designed to take the Navy to the community by showcasing the Navy of today, while valuing the historical contribution of those who have gone before us.

The ceremony can be viewed from North Head and other vantage points around the Harbour.

Maritime Museum heritage vessels, the scow Ted Ashby and the steam vessel Breeze, will also accompany the RNZN ships.

The salute is a naval tradition in which the Maritime Component Commander of the RNZN is formally acknowledging the newly appointed Chief of Navy, Rear Admiral John Martin ONZM.
