Crew Members, Yuan Wang 6

When the Yuan Wang 6 was lying alongside Queens Wharf, there was an interesting activity near the rear. A small truck was parked on the wharf, laden with boxes of Karicare baby formula. It appeared that crew members were in the process of purchasing quantities of the product, maybe even in the form of some kind of auction.

In some shops here, this formula is rationed, because the demand for NZ formula in China is so immense, that deliveries to supermarkets are limited. So perhaps a nice little sideline for crews of ships calling on our port. Or do they have (large numbers of) babies on board?
