I have a "silver" ashtray with an enameled RMSP badge with the name "Atlantis" above it in the centre. Must have been a souvenir of a cruise at some time.

In the time I went to sea I recall a Royal Mail liner, which I have always believed to be Atlantis, charted by the Netherlands government to carry dependents from the Dutch East Indies, prior to it becoming Indonesia.
There were so many babies born during the passage, and she became known as the S.S. Storch.

She could have picked up this charter after delivering British immigrants to Oz or NZ. Anybody else remember, or heard of it?

SS Atlantis

Samsette you are probably right, I know she did carry some Dutch passangers so it`s most likely the ones you mention. T.C.

Dear Robert,
Have just joined the site five minutes ago....found your knowledge of the ship fascinating. I am also nearly 70, in about 18 months time. My mother sailed out on her in December '47 shortly after my birth, and until last year I never knew her name or what she looked like. I am in Wellington right now to meet my two NEW brothers and a NEW sister !! We have been searching for any news etc. in the maritime museum. Unfortunately Mum died last year but at least I have found my younger siblings. After visiting Auckland next week we will be off back to our home in Spain.
Kindest regards,
John Ryan

Hi Tony.
What was your Grandfather's name? Was he the Captain for the three years that the ship was in service from the UK to NZ?
I am researching my father's voyage to New Zealand.

My parents came out to NZ on the Atlantis, sailed ex Southampton 29 July 1949, arrived Wellington 11 September 1949. They travelled out separately, but met for the first time on their first day at sea (the rest, as they say, is history). Mum is Thelma Carnegie, Dad is John (Jack) Braid. Passenger List is available on the Ancestry website.

Hi Iíve just got on to this site as I have been going through my late Motherís memorabilia & came across her seamanís log. She was a nurse on the Atlantis end of 1949 - 51. Tony Clynes Grand Father was her Captain. I know she really enjoyed her time on the ship & I still have her cabin table from the ship when she came out of service.
