Question posed by a Sparker

I would like to know on what occasions a ship of the RNZN flys the NZ ensign (blue) when underway.

Dave Trigg – On Te Kaha we sailed with the NZ Blue when we had been handed to the NZ Government and prior to commissioning.

Mike Commons – one occasion is when going into battle

Frank Lewis – When the buntings forget to take it down on sailing. And it has happened.

Brad King – Also when sailing on a dress ship day you sail with the jack (current NZ Flag) flying when in sight of land. (Geez, I do remember something bunting wise)
