This site is an online nautical museum, devoted to nearly 90 years of history of the Sea Cadet Corps in Christchurch, the South Island and New Zealand generally. Have a look around, perhaps rekindle memories, and leave comments if you wish.

We are very interested to receive and display any photographs or memories you have in your personal collections. Credit will be given.

Email material directly to the webmaster here or go to the Contact page. If you are sending photos, please remember to state (as far as possible) the information that puts them in context: what, where, when and who. Thank you.

This site is maintained by officers of TS Godley, the merged Sea Cadet unit which superceded TS Steadfast and TS Cornwell in Christchurch following the earthquakes of 2010-2011.
