Their show . . .

LETTER

Such a large advertisement (last Wednesday) thanking all involved in the Cook commemorations, though no money seemed to have been spent celebrating Captain Cook and his HMB Endeavour. Gisborne didn’t even get the Endeavour models replaced. The captain and crew of HMB Endeavour should have been thanked first. It was supposed to be their show. The others were all secondary.

The captain and crew of the Spirit of Adventure were not even there — it was the captain and crew of the Spirit of New Zealand who should have been thanked.
