It amazes me that so many people, on such a long voyage, can be given such a wide choice of food. The new “Menus” page on this blog has a selection of Breakfast, Lunch, Tea, and Dinner menus dating as far back as the 1930s. Some of the old menus are quite fascinating, and there are also a few unusual ones celebrating special occasions, or with a much needed sense of humour during war-time.
Two of my particular favourites are the Rangitata‘s High-Tea menu from 1942, and the Ruahine‘s Farewell Dinner menu from 1960 which has been signed by some of the passengers. Please let me know if you find your relative in the list of names by commenting below.
