New Collection: Torpedo Bay Navy Museum Medal Display

Posted on 28 August 2019 by Thomasin

We're delighted to welcome the Torpedo Bay Navy Museum as a content partner, with their Medal Display Collection now available via DigitalNZ.

This collection of over 180 images shows how they were worn by their recipient, arranged and mounted in the order they were received. Not only do the images tell a story of each recipient - Torpedo Bay Navy Museum's online archive provides detailed text information on each medal the person who received them.

You can view the full collection by visiting
