I was a crew member on the tanker Erne some years ago now. I would appreciate it if I can get a photo of the this vessel. Please advise.

Thanks

I would like your permission to use some of the information about the Holm Shipping Company - we are writing a short review of Ferdinand Holm\'s life as part of bringing the Karori cemetery \'alive\' The Holm\'s have a significant family grave there.

Thank you for your thorough account of the history of the Steamer Express. I have adapted it for a forthcoming report on the Future of Seas for the NZDF. We need to know our history to better understand our future. I will ensure your site receives the appropriate credit.

Spent my childhood overlooking Wellington Harbour Entrance. Remember the skows heading over the Strait to South Island. Commenced my apprenticeship in 1961 with Union Steam. The internet and nostalgia have much to answer for!!

Great site. Surprised it is not used more.
Had many friends working the coast back in the 60\'s while I was stationed in Oamaru.
Still searching the web for photo\'s of the Katui and Kanna. Is there anyone out there that can assist?

I would like to write, but do not have your address. My dad was cook on the Holmglen that sunk in 1959 near Timaru. That place is something that I see on photos, but I wonder about how my dad, Joe Anson, saw it as he sailed past there many times. Seeing photos of the Holmglen is a great comfort to my and my older brother. My younger brother died of lung cancer five years ago. I am trying to get my dad\'s National Insurance Number so that I can apply to the National Archives for his navy history, a part of his life when he was away from us. If anyone knew him, please contact me.
