New Zealand Defence
A sample of items related to New Zealand Defence from the Nash collection.
Although Nash was a pacifist during World War One in accordance with his Christian and Socialist beliefs, he later had to modify these views as a cabinet minister.
The Nash era took in World War II (1939-1945), Cold War related conflicts in Asia (Korea 1950-1953, Malaya 1948-1960, Thailand 1962, Malaysia 1960-1963, Borneo 1964-1966, Vietnam 1959-1975).
The items in this section are related more towards 'Defence' and contain items such as 'A Handbook of the New Zealand Navy League' and 'Manpower' and 'Munitions' files. This differs from the World gallery which relate more towards 'action' during the wars, with a more international perspective.
