“Since its inception in 1928, HMNZS TOROA has been a large part of
history and during this period has played a vital role in the City’s history.
During World War 2 numerous members of TOROA were drafted into the New Zealand
Division of the Royal Navy and then in 1941, the Royal New Zealand Navy.
Assistance was also offered during the 1959 fire that devastated the Arthur
Barnett store and again in 1990 during the Aramoana massacre, when members of
HMNZS TOROA manning the inshore patrol Vessel HMNZS MOA positioned it to seal
off the harbour entrance to all shipping.” Dunedin
