Deodar The Story of Auckland's Water Police
By Ian T. Clarke

Paperback, 1994, 142pages, very good condition
Boating mysteries and fishing tragedies, riots and radio `pirates', spectacular Anniversary Day regattas and Whitbread races, nuclear ship protests, the Spring bok tour and the Rainbow Warrior affair; the story of the Deodar and Auckland's water police is a fascinating tale that will appeal to seafarers and landlubbers alike. Exhaustive research and numerous photographs have brought to life a history spanning over one hundred years.

The policing of Auckland's harbours and waterfront began in the 1840s and, through police and public records and newspapers, the author, himself a crewman, and later Senior Launchmaster, on the Deodar for more than twenty years, has created a unique picture of Auckland's past.

Boating enthusiasts, too, will find much to interest them of a technical and seafaring nature as technological changes and innovation have played a major role in the development of the policing of our waters.

Auckland has always looked to its coastline and in-shore waters for both commerce and recreation. This book confirms the importance of this relationship and makes a fascinating contribution to our understanding of Auckland's past,
