TradeMe Auctioning Warship

The HMNZS Wellington (F69) is parked outside Te Papa in preparation for being sunk off Wellington's South Coast as a diving attraction, later this year.

Trade Me has exclusive rights to auction everything inside her before she is sunk. The 45-tonne main gun is not for sale, but everything else is - including brass shells and red buttons for firing torpedos (torpedos not included).
