Hi anyone know of the ship called "Abel Tasman" My family along with many more were transported from Surabaya to Auckland in 1946. We landed in Auckland on Good Friday 21st April 1946. I know that the ship steamed via Port Morsby New Guinea to take on board wood for fuel. I was 4 years old at the time and Both my parents have passed away so I can not ask them.

Any information would be much appreciated. Cheers Gysplee.
