I have an advert from the NZ Herald of about 1956 stating that "The 65 ships of the USSCo of NZ ..."- each ship is shown in profile and named. Sorry I can't scan it for youse jokers as it's tucked away 12000 mls from Surrey- but will do as soon as I get back there.
In 1979 I returned to seafaring and joined "Dunedin" (ex "Union New Zealand") then "Waitaki"(ex Union Australia")- both run by Maritime Carriers of NZ.Wasn't there another one of those called "Union Tasman" - what happened to her?
