In 1957 and 1958, the New Zealand Government sent navy ships and hundreds of sailors in support of British nuclear testing in the Pacific. This deployment would have life-changing consequences for the sailors and their families. 

The exhibition profiles 19 veterans who tell their personal stories of service and the impact of witnessing the detonation of nuclear devices.
