Navy Reunion 2020

Thursday 13th February 2020

A one-off reunion of all those who served in HMNZS TAMAKI on Motuihe Island, known as The Rock, during its period as a Navy training establishment from 1941 to 1963 will be held in Auckland 14-16 February 2020.  The reunion is aimed at bringing together those who experienced a unique time in their lives and the history of the RNZN.  As those who undertook their basic training on The Rock can attest, surviving the training was an experience that will never be forgotten. 
If you served on The Rock, either as a trainee or as Ship’s Company, and are interested in the reunion, please go to the RNZN Communicators website at, then click on ‘The ‘ROCK’ Reunion’ (in the black banner under the photos). From the drop-down menu you can find further information on the reunion in the Newsletters and Register for it.  Alternatively, if you would like information or a Registration Form in hard-copy form then please contact Gary Houghton via email at or on telephone 022 3134634.
