Tono kōrero mai

The famous sailing vessel "Pamir" is remembered by the men who sailed in her. A Finnish ship, she was seized during World War II as Finland was regarded as enemy territory. Nearly 250 New Zealanders then sailed her across the Pacific and around the world as a merchant vessel, before she was returned to her owner, Gustaf Erikson, after the war.

The men who speak about serving on the Pamir are:
Captain Galloway
Captain Jenkins
Murray Henderson
Frank Gardiner
Bob Renner (deceased, but his memories are recalled in archival sound recordings)
