Hi

Am I correct in using the category, [[Category:New Zealand Division of the Royal Navy]], for a career member of the RNZN?

Many thanks

The New Zealand division of the Royal Navy category would be the wrong category for Keith Duley. My reasoning is that that division was renamed to the Royal New Zealand Navy in 1941 and Keith was unlikely to be in the navy at age 11 at best (If born early 1930's). 

A correct category would be a category connected to the [[Category: Royal New Zealand Navy]] as that category would cover the time period that Keith is likely to have served during.
