Winterovers from New Zealand


Twenty-four Kiwis have wintered...starting with the 3-year period in the 1970s when the NZ met service did the weather...and then skipping to more recently. Several years ago RPSC started hiring folks to work on the new station...

Note that Kevin DuPuy was a Brit, but he had moved to NZ where he was working when he was hired. He later returned to the UK. Paul Smith was born in North London and has dual British/NZ citizenship, but was raised in NZ and considers himself Kiwi through and through. And Wilfred Walsh has more recently relocated to UNSW in Australia.
