I was deck boy in the Waipori in January 1956 when we moved Wirth's Circus from Picton to Wellington. Had an elephant break loose on the Picton wharf. Ran around a shed and smashed into several parked cars which were waiting to be loaded onto the Rangatira. Did my boys time on the N.Z. coast then into British, Scandanavian and Panama registered {American owned} ships. Came back to the coast many years later as relieving 2nd mate with the Union Company. Don't see any names that I remember on this site.
