AUSTRALIAN & NEW ZEALAND LIST OF VESSELS LOST, MISSING OR TAKEN FROM ACTIVE SERVICE 1874-1949.
This is a most comprehensive list of some 5700 vessels, in tabulated format of vessel name, rig, tonnage, port of registry, date of build, particulars and date, based on the Register of Australian and New Zealand Shipping. This register was published annually by the Marine Underwriters and Salvage Association of Victoria Limited from the returns furnished by the customs authorities in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and New Guinea. The author acknowledges there were errors in the register as to be expected from any hand-written and maintained register. A most valuable tool for the maritime historian and enthusiast.
