TSS Rotorua at sea, 1910 - 1917
TSS Rotorua at sea, 1910 - 1917
The TSS Rotorua at sea under full steam. Location unknown.

Among its 3rd-class passengers on its maiden voyage from London were three young men from Taunton, Somerset: Sidney Clist aged 24, his brother John Clist 18, and their cousin Charles Rossiter 19, departing Plymouth on 29 October 1910. They stopped at Capetown and Hobart en route, and arrived in Wellington on 11 December 1910. You can see them on deck in this photo.

The TSS Rotorua was sunk in the English Channel on 22 March 1917.

Visit to Aunt Ellen Brewer
Visit to Aunt Ellen Brewer
Sidney's Aunt Ellen Brewer lived at the Higher Hunthan Farm, North Curry, Somerset. The farmhouse is an ancient listed building, with portions believed to be built in the 16th and early 18th centuries.

This is a photo of William Brewer, Sidney Clist's cousin, taken beside Sidney's Armstrong Siddeley car which he bought on his visit to the UK in 1931, and subsequently shipped it to New Zealand. This car would have been an up-market 1920s model, distinguished by its rear-hinged rear doors. I should think Will Brewer would have been doing the farming for his mother Ellen, as Sidney does not mention Ellen's husband Henry Brewer, whom I presume was deceased.
