My first ship was the 'Rangitane' NZ Shipping Co. I stayed with NZS Co for a couple of trips then went to P&O Canadian Pacific.
Does anyone remember Mike Puttock, I think he was at the school late 54 or 55 and sailed with Port Line?
I stayed at sea until 59 and then went
to collage to study Mech. Eng. I passed in 62 and went to work in the
motor racing industry stayed until 1970. Then moved to New Zealand where
there was not a lot going in my line, so I made the switch to Architecture
and stayed in that industry until I retired in 2004 with a dickey ticker.
However, it is still working. So I now live in KAWHIA on the west coast of
the North Island of NZ with my wife Diane.
