Towle appears to be "NZ Aux" and "2nd Officer" in the ADRIC record, but appreciate that the documents are not easy to read I have had a go at Navy list UK, Seaman's cards UK and Masters and Mates certs Uk, but he is not there, nor is he in London Gazette I think you are probably looking for the equivalent of RNR or RNVR for NZ Navy - I have no idea how you get that . I cannot find any war record nor anything like a seaman's card nor evidence of master's or mate's qualifications.
