    Default MV Rangatira 1982 Falkland crew list

    Hi,
    Does anyone have a copy of the crew list for the MV RANGATIRA 1982. Sailing Southampton 19th June 1982 arrived Port Stanley Falkland Islands 11th July 1982 or know where I can get a copy.

    I would be so grateful if someone can help me with this.

    Kind Regards
    Martin

    Hi Martin,
    Would the MOD have the crew list? I was on the MV Cedarbank. We got there a bit later.
    All the best.

    I would agree the MOD would have the crew list for the issuing of the Falklands medal
    I was on the Rangatira joined in Sept

    Thanks for your reply.
    I just can’t find the right place to get the crew list from.

    Any help would be gratefully received.

    Kiwi engineers may be able to help - Adolf van Asbeck (from Island Bay, Wellington, NZ) was at school in the UK and the MOD put out a call for 'Any NZ engineers who know how this thing works! Dolf signed on.
    I'll try a couple of other forums and see what comes up. It was a sad day when that ship departed NZ for the last time.

    Found Dolf, but couldn't get a response on Facebook. Still lives in Wellington, NZ tough.
    Martin - if you are doing a search, put in TEV Rangitira, not MV Rangitira. She was the last steam turbo electric passenger vessel in the world - very smooth machinery, but guzzled the fuel due to the boiler & electrical losses. Not very efficient. Went on her a couple of times.
    The crew wouldn't downsize during the winter months, so often the stewards would outnumber the pax. It couldn't survive like that.
    Which was a great shame as she was a very stylish-looking ship.
