My father travelled on TSS captain cook in 1955 from New York to Glasgow.Hi Barrie, sailed from Glasgow 6th Oct? arrived Wellington mid/late Nov 1955 where I turned 15. Went on to Tokoroa where my dad had a house & job waiting. Our family migrated to NZ from Gourock Scotland so we were passengers. We lived about 1 mile upstream from the Cloch Lighthouse. Had a pretty rough trip through the Irish Sea & accross the Atlantic till the Carribean then ok to Wellington.
I've just discovered this site. I was aboard the Captain Cook and arrived in NZ November 1955 as a five year old, but I have good memories of my journey and can recall many details of life on board. I would love to hear from anyone else who was on that journey.
