    The picture shown is the the HMS New Zealand (1905-1911) which was a pre-dreadnought battleship of the King Edward VII class (4-12",4-9.2",10-6",16,350 tons, 18-19 knots). She was re-named HMS Zealandia on Dec 1, 1911; releasing the "HMS New Zealand" name for a new battlecruiser that was completed in January 1912 (not pictured). The HMS Zealandia and her 7 sisters made up the 3rd Battle Squadron with the home fleet at the beginning of WWI, but because of their slower speed were soon relegated to serving in other theaters of the war where faster German dreadnoughts were not potential advesaries.
