Although the menus appear under "Other Menus" on the Ephemera page, I thought it would be neat for them to also be be placed in proximity to the photograph from an actual event that took place on the same voyage.

I can add no comment to these images from the early sixties...but it seems that in providing their own entertainment, the boys generated a lot of fun.


Even Engineers need a rest now and then

Some time ago I received an email from Ms. Patti Stevely who told me that her father, Daniel Walker, now 92 years old, had been an Engineer on the Rangitiki in 1936 - 1937.

Today (17 July 2007) I received the photograph shown to the right.
Ms. Stevely allows that her "
Dad's sight is poor but I have been telling him about your site and he has enjoyed hearing about it." 

Let's hope that we can stir up a few more memories for Mr. Walker.
