A Shivery Sheep Shipment

An organization called Meat & Wool New Zealand (which reminds me of the documentary title Pets or Meat) is looking for descendants of the clever Kiwis who shipped frozen sheep carcasses to London in 1882.

“New Zealanders are proud of their forebears,” says Meat & Wool Chairman Jeff Grant.
“We’re sure there are people out there with historic family anecdotes about their association with that first refrigerated meat shipment and we’d love to hear their stories, see any photos they might have or other memorabilia.” [Link]
