we-were-thereOperation Grapple – The story of New Zealand’s involvement in the British nuclear weapons tests at Christmas Island 1957-58
A story compiled by Gerry Wright. 241 pages with black and white photos.

This story has been compiled mainly for the benefit of those who served in HMNZ Ships Pukaki and Rotoiti during Operation Grapple and their descendants as a record of their service. It also marks the 50th anniversary of the first of nine British nuclear weapon tests off Christmas Island in 1957. This is not the story of nuclear bombs but the story of those who served in Pukaki and Rotoiti during their weather reporting deployments for Operation Grapple in 1957-58. It is their story. -RNZN Communicators Association
