Two pages of caricatures were produced on the way to the European war by little-known artist Shirreffs McIntyre, 1880?–1919. The editors selected a drawing of the ship’s Captain Todd for later publication. The magazine Kiwi recorded the voyage of transport ship 83, the Tofua.

McIntyre was born in Aberdeen, Scotland, and in 1907, he was a journalist in Oamaru. He was called up under the Military Service Act in 1917, while living as an artist and hotel porter in Te Puke. He travelled to Europe with the Auckland Regiment. McIntyre was shot in the leg on the Somme battlefield. After blood transfusions, his leg healed quite well. In November 1918, he was classified as unfit, due to a heart condition. McIntyre died just after discharge from the army.
