You will all be aware from past correspondence that Frank Lewis has been working with Heritage New Zealand on having HMNZS IRIRANGI become part of the NZ Heritage List. He has been in contact recently and it is obvious that further research is currently being carried out and they are working through Frank’s nomination application. It is a slow process however things are looking good. Frank quotes from their letter “Your nomination is considered to be a good candidate for entry on the List for its potential to enhance knowledge of New Zealand’s history, specifically promoting awareness of the important role that the station and its staff played in the international military communications network during wartime and it subsequent commission as HMNZS Irirangi”. We have now been allocated a List Number 9769 and Site Reference P172166. Recent discussions also indicate that they will also include Transmitters in the application. So we just wait. Below are copies of the letters. Thanks Frank L for all your work.
