The Pamir Under the New Zealand Ensign. The Pamir, a four-masted barque flying the Finnish flag, sailed into New Zealand waters at a time, during the Second World War, when her country was entering enemy status. Taken in prize, she became a puzzle and a challenge to a country at war whose lifelines stretched across vast oceans; shipping space was urgently needed but a windjammer? Sail was anachronism. This is the story of how the New Zealand Government, in partnership with one of its historic shipping lines, the Union Steam Ship Company, commissioned and sailed the sturdy vessel between Wellington and North American ports until after the war. Voyages are reconstructed in detail, often using extracts from diaries, letters and masters' reports of the time. the Pamir's fortunes are followed through her famous postwar voyage to London and back to Auckland, her return to Finnish owners, and her tragic end as a cargo carrying training ship in German ownership when she was overwhelmed by an Atlantic storm. The Pamir Under New Zealand Ensign is the first definitive work on this fine vessel, 1941-1949. It may well be the last account of the voyages of a sailing ship carrying cargo.
