PAMIR's life before and after the antipodean interlude have been well documented elsewhere http://perso.infonie.fr/pamir/Index.htm but it is the love, respect, esteem and nostalgia surrounding this great ship and her association with New Zealand to which this page is dedicated.
The circumstances surrounding the delivery of PAMIR to the care and custody of the New Zealand Government and the Union Company were rapidly moved by the juggernaut of the Nazi war machine during those dark days in Europe towards their inevitable conclusion.
The era of the commercially viable sailing ship had passed and PAMIR was laid-up until March 1951 when she, along with her sister and sometime rival PASSAT, were sold to a shipbreaker in Antwerp.
