  • The flow of troops, goods and fuel was critical to the success of the Allied war effort during the First World War. The danger faced at sea by the crews of the Mercantile Marine was recognised by the issue of the Mercantile Marine War Medal.


    This book represents the roll of those who received medals in New Zealand. It includes the issue information, taken from the medal index cards held at Archives New Zealand, and combines this with medal naming rolls to produce the definitive guide to the naming and issue of this medal in New Zealand. The book also includes biographical notes on many of the recipients, plus numismatic information on the medal itself.
