Photo is Holmdale.
Ships with weather names were those of Canterbury Steam Shipping Company, who during their time (1904-1969) along with other vessels, had Storm (2), Gale (2), Breeze (2), Squall (2) and Gale (3).

You are possibly thinking of Holm & Co vessel "Holmglen" (485 grt, blt 1955 Holland). Foundered with loss of crew (15) 24/11/1959, approx 22 miles SE of Timaru, on voyage Oamaru to Wellington.
