    My grandfather (who just turned 98) was an engineer onboard the Rangitiki during the war, when it had been commissioned by the Merchant Navy. He was onboard when the chief engineer M. Bearpark passed away and remembers quite clearly having to place him in the refrigerated area of the ship as they were unable to perform a sea burial. He has copies of records detailing the dates he sailed with the Rangitiki if anyone is interested in seeing them.
