hullo - my mother came out from Canada to Auckland on board the Permanente landing about november 20 but what even more important to me was that my parents married on board the ship!! in capt wertz' cabin. an airforce [catholic] padre as my father ex rnzaf and my mother instructed empire air training scheme people for canadian air force!! if you looks at nz papers past site you will also see that the staff and families for the 1st nz russian embassy came out on the same trip - bringing a motor car with them i do remember being taken to meet at auckland captain wertz when he was later captain of the mariposa - according to my mother many of the warbrides on this trip returned overseas with or without their husbands - hope this is of interest to you, tom
