Shame the pic does not show her in the glory days with NZSCo. Those P & O colours were dreadful compared with the Fedral Funnel. Many happy memories as an Eng Cadet.

I've put a pic of the "Otaio" in the Gallery, which you might like. A winter scene taken in Lyttelton, June 59. The other NZS ship is the "Wharanui", which I was on at the time as 2nd R/O

In 1964, along with a party of students from Northeastern School of Wireless Telegraphy, Bridlington, I visited "Otaio" in Hull, accompanied by insturctor John Palethorpe, a former Radio Officer on the ship. What a fine time we had and it was interesting to discover, a few years later, that everything the lads told us was true! What Mr Palethorpe told me about Fiji was even more true - if you're out there John - Good one!
