About this object
Bell; a turned wood and ivory, electric, push-button bell. From the S.S. Manuka.

The wreck of the Manuka was described by A R Tyrell in his book, Catlins Pioneering: "The Manuka, a Union Steamship Company, twin-screw steamer sunk in 1929 after striking a reef below Long Point. After an uncomfortable long night in the lifeboats, 203 passengers and crew landed safely on a nearby beach. From there they had to cross the paddocks to a road from where they were transported to Owaka.

A marine inquiry found that the ship had been south of her supposed position and that the casualty was due to an abnormal westerly set. The captain, officers and crew were praised for their actions after the accident".
