Here is an image of HMNZS TARANAKI sailors parading in support of the Opening of Parliament in 1969. A large Anti-Vietnam protest group at the rear. Sailors had to endue these protestors when going on leave in Auckland and many a scuffle occurred during these turbulant times. Can you identify any of the sailors? Thanks to the National Library for the image.
