Title:H.M.S."New Zealand" in Lyttelton
Article Abstract:The journals of Cyrus Williams describe the visit to Lyttelton of the battle cruiser H.M.S. NEW ZEALAND in 1913. There were problems with a visit of H.M.S. POWERFUL in 1906 when she remained at anchor in Camp Bay and gave great difficulty in boarding when she was rolling. Cyrus Williams decided every effort should be made to get the NEW ZEALAND alongside a wharf, and with her commander, Captain Halsey concocted what became a secret plan to do so. In the event, all went smoothly - a well described interesting story.
