    • The Maunganui ... was manned and operated by the Union Steam Ship Company of New Zealand ... The medical personnel were selected by the Director-General of Medical Services and the sisters were appointed from the New Zealand Army Nursing Service by the Matron-in-Chief. ... [The ship] remained a New Zealand Army Medical Headquarters' responsibility throughout the war. ... Leaving Wellington on 28 June [1945], the ship again headed for the Pacific and was the medical centre for the British Pacific Fleet at Manus Island from 7 July to 18 August before moving on to Hong Kong and Formosa with the American Task Force 111 to pick up patients from among the prisoners of war released from the Japanese. Most of these patients were brought back to New Zealand on her return on 8 October. Medical Services in New Zealand and the Pacific / T. Duncan M. Stout. Wellington : Government Printer, 1958, p.299-301.
