My maternal grandmother used to take the Wanganella (leaving from the port of Onehunga) down the east coast of NZ to visit her parents in Taranaki.

She would get off in Wanganui and then tale the train up to Patea.

She was a really bad sailor and was seasick most of the voyage....

P.S. I have one of the WW1 Australian Merchant Service badges that I would like to identify but I think that the records are less than complete.
