[ih] Pre-internet 50 baud connections circa 1967

I received the following interesting message from New Zealand last week - 
can anyone give any more information on this?

"A basic 50 baud Military International network was established in NZDF back 
in 1967 from Main Signals Centre in Wellington NZ sending messages to 
Australia, UK, & USA. I recall addresses started with RPYxxx and were sent 
either on tape, teleprinter or from TopSecret KW encryption valve equipment 

(If it's top secret and you cant talk about it until 50 years have elapsed, 
just let me know that you will reply next year!)
